Volunteer Job Description: Volunteers assist the teacher in working with refugees who are learning English. Volunteers generally work with smaller groups of adult students who need assistance with specific skills. No experience is necessary. This is a fun and engaging way to serve and form friendships with members of Denver’s refugee community. We have ongoing needs in each of our English classes throughout the year.

Project Worthmore works to restore worth to our refugee neighbors through the heart of our community. Every family we serve has a unique story, a steadfast courage, and a resilience to survive and rebuild their lives here in Colorado. Started as a makeshift response to the unmet needs of our refugee neighbors in 2009, we have grown to offer a variety of programs and services including English language classes, citizenship classes, a community-run food access program, a refugee training farm, a five-chair dental clinic, and access to Community Navigators and Family Partners.
