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 assist them in reaching their goals. Bridge Builders join a Neighborhood Pod, made up of other Bridge Builder volunteers and a Pod Leader. Pods are mini-support communities, where Bridge Builders join together to problem solve, share tips and resources, and celebrate successes. This is a unique and powerful experience for volunteers of all ages. While we prefer volunteers be able to commit for 2+ years, Bridge Builders involves a 1 year minimum commitment, visiting with families for 2-4 hours per week, and participating in RCP's regular community events.
