US COMMITTEE FOR REFUGEES AND IMMIGRANTS
Our Organization serves refugees and immigrants with services including family-based immigration,
employment assistance and resettlement case management. The CPSP student volunteers will
have the opportunity to assist the Refugee Case Manager in meeting the needs of new arrivals
including health, English as a Second Language and social services referrals. Alternately,
the student volunteers will be able to assist the Citizenship
and Immigration Program Coordinator with helping clients with the immigration process,
preparation for the citizenship 'test' and English language practice.
This placement could be of interest to students majoring in social work,
international relations, political science, foreign languages, migration studies,
planning and public policy. We are a multifaceted organization always looking for good
people to help us with a large variety of tasks. We welcome all those interested in
working with us, and will work closely with you to make sure that you get what you need
and want out of your volunteer experience while giving to your community.
