At the Global Refugee Center, volunteers are truly our heartbeat. Our volunteers educate, empower and advocate for refugees and immigrants everyday. They are the embodiment of the GRC's vision to promote positive, meaningful relationships between refugees and mainstream communities. There is no person too small or time too little - we could use all kinds of skills sets. Whether it is teaching English, explaining a medical bill, interpreting, or simply being a friendly face in town, GRC's volunteers have an enormous impact on the lives of refugees and immigrants in Weld County.
