Foundations of Community Sponsorship are training materials prepared by the Global Refugee Sponsorship Initiative with the aim of supporting organizations in countries developing community sponsorship programs.

Organizations supporting sponsorship groups and refugee newcomers can use the Foundations of Community Sponsorship to train and prepare sponsorship group members. This set of modularized and reflective training resources includes a training manual for in-person delivery as well as a complementary online learning resource.

These materials are universal in nature and can be tailored and contextualized by local organizations for different community-based refugee sponsorship programs.

Some countries may already have official and/or mandatory training resources available. It is strongly recommended that you explore your national training materials beforehand.
