Women of the World is recruiting volunteers all the time. There are two major classes of volunteers that we need: direct support staff and administrative staff.
Do you feel comfortable communicating with refugees, through sign-language and in broken English? In their homes or tutoring them in English? Do you live in the Salt Lake City region?
Then you will work well as a direct support volunteer.
Do you have skills in web design, social networking, or in fundraising? Would you like to develop an educational curriculum for English Language Learners? Are you ready to raise a start-up business of service professionals to the next level? Are you somewhere other than Utah?
Volunteer in an administration staff position to improve your entrepreneurial skills and increase the status of women.
Women of the World needs your assistance. We offer a unique service experience that gives a sense of purpose from helping women in need and training from a twenty-year woman professional in corporate America that develops important work skills.
For as little as 3 hours per week, you can earn valuable experience and feel good about giving to a woman in need.
If you already know what you’d like to do for women refugees or if you’ve never volunteered before, we have projects that are right for you.

Women of the World has some office service needs in addition to the direct service of the community. Our volunteers are developing a resume and employment database, update case files, and improve upon or create learning materials for new language learners around children’s school, shopping, mail, medicine, employment, and community.
Finally, if a volunteer has a specific expertise that they want to share, a volunteer program can be specially tailored to this expertise. Examples include how our nursing student volunteers developed a home-visit picture binder for communicating important health information or realtors who help draft rental contracts beneficial to refugees.
