We are a volunteer-driven organization that believes in the transformative power of reciprocity and mutual support. Here, neighborhood residents and students contribute their time, skills, and passion to create a sustainable community support infrastructure.
Last year, 50+ volunteers contributed 7,300+ hours of support.
All of RCP's volunteers start as a Bridge Builder. As Bridge Builder volunteers, we work closely alongside local refugee families to address immediate points of need while creating personalized pathways to longterm goals. This is a unique and powerful experience for volunteers of all ages, and is particularly enriching for a family to do together. While we prefer volunteers be able to commit for 2+ years, Bridge Builders involves 1 year minimum commitment. Submit your interest here
Food for the Family
By connecting local farmers with refugee families who face food scarcity, we are working to expand the local food system to involve an overlooked population. We are looking for someone who is passionate about food justice and sustainable food systems to help coordinate our Food for the Family program. This involves representing RCP at the Carrboro Farmer's Market Saturday's from 10:00am-12:00pm and supporting participant leaders during produce distribution from 12:00pm-1:00pm in Carrboro. Inquire with email@example.com.
Do you have specific skills or talents you'd like to use to help RCP further its mission? If you are a photographer, website guru, social media strategist, journalist, graphic designer, multi-lingual speaker, or other specially skilled magician, consider volunteering your expertise. Inquire with firstname.lastname@example.org
Leadership opportunities for current Bridge Builders
From capacity building to grant research to administrative systems, the opportunities to get your hands on the internal operations of RCP are endless. We value the perspectives, creativity, and motivation volunteers bring to our growth and inner workings, and cherish the opportunity to be shaped by people who are excited and energized by this work.
