Remember last week’s Reader Question from Jenny Barischoff, who is starting a refugee resettlement program in Salem, OR? You contributed so many helpful resources to support her important employment volunteer strategy that they deserve their own post.
Click here for all of the curriculums, forms and resources to help employment volunteers and mentors you contributed for Jenny.
In addition, also consider the employment volunteer program structure from Friends of Refugees in Clarkston, GA and the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) employment mentoring guide.
Resources Beyond Volunteer Programs
Several resources give volunteers information to help clients prepare for interviews or complete job applications and online personality assessments. Others are designed to encourage volunteers to reinforce important messages clients hear from others in your agency. This collection is well worth investigating to support other aspects of our work.
Thanks to World Relief DuPage/Aurora, Catholic Charities Diocese of San Diego, CA, New American Pathways in Atlanta, GA, Integrated Refugee and Immigrant Services (IRIS), New Haven, CT and African Community Center of Denver, CO for helping Jenny – and all of us!
