Refugee and Immigration: Employment Team

Refugee & Immigration
Volunteers will work with recent refugees to define their job-seeking goals and to assess their skills and capabilities. They will then help them develop their resumes, interviewing skills, and will work to match a particular refugee’s skills with employment opportunities the team has identified or further develops. This work encourages one-on-one mentoring between volunteers and refugee clients throughout the job search process, including interview preparation and follow-up, proper workplace demeanor and dress, and check-ins after a successful placement. BJ members who are themselves employers and who would like to work with us, or those with access to employers who can help develop additional opportunities, are also very welcome.

This group will meet monthly, with meetings/calls with individual refugee clients in between as appropriate.

After signing up, you will be contacted by Richard Fields, the team leader, for a conversation to determine the best ways for you to contribute to this effort.

This is a subgroup of BJ's Refugee and Immigration Committee. When you join, we will also add you to the general list and encourage you to attend larger committee meetings. If you are interested in the Refugee and Immigration Committee but are undecided on your focus of interest, contact committee Co-Chair Elaine Klein, elainekleinteacher@gmail.com, to learn more.

We're sorry.
