African Refuge

Serving African Refugees, immigrants and low-income families since 2003.

Volunteer for African Refuge

African Refuge is seeking dedicated students and volunteers who have a flexible schedule, and can dedicate at least 10-15 hours a week for at least one semester (3-4 months). The internship may be extended.

We are open to working with any level college student, particularly those studying and/or with a background in marketing, public relations, social work, international studies, history, education or English. We are also open to working with those who are interested in non-profit or service industries.

This is a unique opportunity  for anyone interested in pursuing career in international development or affairs, social change, human  rights, community organizing, forced migration or war trauma.

Internship/volunteer positions are  not paid. However, these positions provide an opportunity for students and volunteers to develop new skills, gain volunteer experience, and learn about the rich culture of African immigrants and refugees, as well as the struggles of low-income families in urban America.
