Volunteering in service of migrants and refugees

 

The Franciscan Network on Migration (RFM) extends a warm invitation to all those who are interested in serving at migrant and refugee shelters associated with our network in Guatemala, Mexico and the United States.

On Christmas Eve, we launched our “Volunteer Campaign 2021.” The application process is open to all people of legal age who speak Spanish at an intermediate level. Applicants should be open to giving their time and have the ability to stay at one of our seven houses. All of our shelters are in need of support and collaboration in order to continue the service they provide daily to migrants and refugees.

Volunteering is an unforgettable and life-changing experience. We are hoping that lay people, men and women religious, priests, students, and workers from different countries will take up this challenge that the present times have laid before us.

The houses and teams of Franciscan Network on Migration need help and volunteers. We ask that you will help us spread the word about this opportunity.

For more information about the current placements and requirements of volunteer service, we invite you to visit our website: https://redfranciscana.org/voluntariado/. Here you will find our application form and a pdf that you can download and share. Once you fill out the form, a representative from your preferred house will contact you.

NOTE: All materials related to volunteering are in Spanish as one of the basic requirements for applicants is an intermediate level of Spanish.

Peace and all good!
