Our Collaborating Partners

Nine State Department-sponsored voluntary organizations (VOLAGs) oversee U.S. resettlement of refugees. The agencies listed below have stated that they welcome returned Peace Corps volunteers to help their resettlement efforts. Contact one of their local affiliates near you. Volunteer with refugees arriving now, or with some of the many who are already here and need continuing assistance for their first year in the U.S. or beyond. Put the cross-cultural skills you learned in the Peace Corps to work helping new refugee friends settle into life in the U.S.
