Huskers and RSOs can connect with service opportunities to help the Lincoln community. Join fellow Huskers this month to volunteer at nonprofits connected to immigrant and refugee support.
Explore and Understand: Immigrant & Refugee Support
Refugees are people who have fled war, violence, conflict or persecution and have crossed an international border to find safety in another country. Immigration and refugee support involve helping refugees and displaced people with access to resources, education, transitional programs and support programs.
