Resources for Getting Involved



Being a part of a sponsorship group involves working together to support the refugee newcomers in their adjustment to the new country. In addition to, or instead of this, depending on your availability and interest, there are activities that sponsorship groups and others in their communities that are not officially part of a group do; this sometimes includes volunteering for a specific task as needs arise (e.g. moving day), contributing financially, and promoting refugee sponsorship.

For more specific resources on getting involved in your own community, visit the website for that country’s program below. More details about group formation: Forming a Group
