Volunteer Opportunities

Once you’ve attended one of our monthly volunteer orientation sessions, obtained a certified criminal background check from your local courthouse or Sheriffs Department, and completed our application process, you’ll be ready to serve with CWS-Durham. If you missed the information about how to do these two prior steps, please click on the Volunteer tab at the top of our website, or email jbosley@cwsglobal.org for more information. If your paperwork and application has been cleared after you’ve attended orientation and you’re still unsure which volunteer role suits you best, check out this list for some ideas for how you can get involved with refugee resettlement here in the Triangle.
