Volunteer at IINE

Are you interested in volunteering time or housing to resettle Afghan evacuees?

We are forming volunteer teams focused on specific activities such as airport pickup, apartment setup, and food distribution. After you sign up to volunteer, you will be asked for your interest area and availability.

To volunteer or provide housing, please complete this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VPH5DRH

For any questions please reach out to us at volunteers@iine.org

Each year the professional staff at IINE rely on hundreds of local volunteers to help us deliver quality services to IINE’s beneficiaries.

Onsite volunteer opportunities are designed to support Workforce Development programming, including English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), Industry Training Programs, and Employment Services, and Community Services programming.

  • The ESOL Support Program includes tutoring and classroom aide opportunities.
  • The Employment Support Program includes weekly Workforce Orientation Workshop and quarterly Mock Interview Day events, and Mock Interview Prep sessions for one-to-one coaching prior to Mock Interview Day events.
  • The Community Drives Program offers community members the opportunity to support our work remotely by participating and/or organizing Welcome Kit collections and seasonal drives in support of IINE’s students, clients, and programs.
  • Special Projects Support is for individual efforts that target specific, identified needs by site.
  • Groups who take part in special projects do so under the guidance of the volunteer and program managers.

IINE staff work to match volunteers’ interests, availability, and talents with the needs of the people we serve.  Our staff trains every volunteer before they begin their service, and volunteer opportunities range from formal internships and Corps member programs to day or multi-month engagements.
