Mission: Exodus Refugee Immigration works with
refugees - worldwide victims of persecution, injustice and war - to
establish self-sufficient lives in freedom and sanctuary for
themselves and their families in Indiana.
To volunteer in any of the following areas, please fill out our
volunteer form. Volunteers must also attend an orientation and
submit a completed background check.
Teach English: The success of resettlement largely depends on
the refugee's ability to learn English.
Exodus needs volunteers to teach English classes that meet
weekly for three hours. Classes are conducted at the Exodus office,
community locations, and occasionally within a refugee's home. All
materials and curriculum are supplied. Teaching experience and
speaking a second language are not required.
Requirements: Minimum 6-month commitment. Must complete training
and class observation.
Mentor an individual or family: Mentoring an individual or
family is extremely valuable because it allows them to practice
English and to attain a better grasp of American culture.
There are a variety of practical skills you can teach newcomers
as well. Those skills include but are not limited to budgeting,
banking, grocery shopping, and getting acquainted with modern
technology. Time with the individual or family can be spent at
their home, at your home, and/or taking them out to experience new
things in America. This is a great opportunity for families to do
together, because children of all cultures find a way to
communicate and become friends.
Requirements: Minimum 4-month commitment. Must be able to meet
regularly with the refugee individual or family. Must be
comfortable working with individuals with limited English.
Assist with transportation: In Indianapolis, transportation can
be an obstacle to a refugee who is trying to establish employment
or seek services across the city.
Volunteer drivers transport clients to their medical, welfare,
and various other appointments. Exodus will work with the volunteer
to minimize travel time. Volunteers can teach clients the IndyGo
bus routes necessary for transportation to work or to other
activities in the Indianapolis area. Volunteers are also needed to
assist clients with obtaining a Driver's License by reviewing the
Driver's Manual with them and practicing driving.
Requirements: Daytime availability. Reliable transportation,
valid license, and auto insurance.
Set up a home: Each new family that comes through Exodus has an
apartment set up for them before they arrive in the United States.
The apartment is set up with a combination of donated items and
Volunteers are needed to assist with apartment set-ups.
Volunteers are also needed to collect or drop-off donations in the
