Current Volunteers: Submit Your Hours


  • Individuals or groups (such as companies, faith groups, school groups, etc).
  • Anyone ages 16+ can volunteer directly with refugee clients. Anyone ages 13+ can volunteer in other capacities.

What is the Time Commitment?

KRM opportunities range, and we work with your schedule to find something that is a good fit for you. Some volunteers participate in one-time activities while others commit to a three-month program. We are lucky and proud to share that our volunteers stay with KRM for years!
