Join us in keeping alive a 40-year tradition of welcome in Greensboro.



Volunteers form an integral part of the CWS Greensboro team. 

    They serve as support systems, mentors, advocates, and friends as refugees learn to adjust to life in this city.

We cannot welcome refugees without you.    


Anyone interested in serving at our office must complete a Volunteer Application. After your application is reviewed and approved, you will be invited to a volunteer orientation and training. 

More detailed information about volunteer roles and responsibilities are in our online application below.

Currently, all volunteers must be 18 years or older.


Volunteer opportunities vary and are dependent on our most critical needs.
Volunteers may participate in one of our classes,
work with clients in-home, assist with food deliveries or home set-ups,

A Note about Fulfilling Required Volunteer Hours:

If you have a set number of volunteer hours to complete for a class or assignment, thank you for considering doing those hours with our agency! We may not have placements readily available that will meet your needs; our volunteer opportunities are based on the needs of our clients and the availability of our staff to train and supervise your service. Please contact our office with questions about the specifics of your service requirements. Also, note our office does not provide court-related volunteer hours at this time.
