Volunteer Types at PRSG
You will be assigned to a refugee & immigrant family. You will visit the family once a week and help them meet their varying needs. There are tasks that every family will need help with, especially at the beginning of their transition; these include, but are not limited to: making appointments, arranging for interpreters and transportation, teaching families how to use the buses and trains, and showing them where to purchase cost effective food and clothing. At PSRG we offer a customized approach for each family, so while your tasks may vary, your impact never will.
You can join at least one of our or projects or programs, either by managing or assisting in a program / project, or by being involved in administrative work. You will have the opportunity to combine your own expertise with the needs of the program / project you join. For example, you could lead or assist in the following: Community Wellness Program, Tutoring Program, Bake Sales, In-Kind Donations, Community Outreach, Grant Writing, Benefits Advising, and more!
You would be tutoring both families or individuals, adults or children, once per week. Most of your time will likely be focused on tutoring English to our client families, but there are also times where you may be helping the children with their school work. You may be working with the families in their homes or in a group setting. The goal is to help families improve and feel confident in their use of the English language to help them integrate into American society with greater success.
