Description

"First Friends" provide assistance to refugee families or individuals new to the United States as a cultural guide and friend. They visit refugee clients during the first 3-6 months in the US to check on their progress, to answer questions, and help with the adjustment process. Volunteers help provide refugees with important access to the community by teaching them how to shop for groceries and other needed items, how to use public transportation, how to access public libraries, parks and community programs. Volunteers may also choose to focus on adult ESL or employment mentoring.
