Initial Interest and Availability: 2015-2016 Regular/Weekly Sessions
Please select ALL programs in which you are interested/able to participate. You can select multiple options on the list by holding down the command key on a Mac or the control key on a Windows computer. We will do our best to place you in a program based on your initial interest and availability. Once your application has been submitted and processed, you will be notified of which program you have been placed in to volunteer. If you have a strong preference for a specific program type and/or program day, please list your preferences in descending order in the “Initial Interest Regular Rank” box. Please note that programs do fill up quickly, so you may not be placed in your first preference.
  • Global Explorers (FULL Available Waitlist) is a one-on-one mentoring program in a group setting for middle and high school refugee students who have recently been resettled in the U.S. In “Explorers," mentors help students adjust to life and education in the U.S. through individual and group activities and field trips. Explorers meets 10 Saturdays in both the fall and spring semester and is our only program requiring a volunteer commitment of two academic semesters. (Must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer.)
  • Global Learners (FULL Available waitlists) is our after school program for middle school refugee students.

Mentors are required to attend 10 program sessions within the semester. (Must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer in LAMS program.)
  • Global Leaders (FULL Available Waitlist) is our after school program for high school refugee students. In "Leaders," mentors support students through group (and some individual) activities designed to build the social, emotional, leadership, and other life skills necessary to attain higher education and employment. Mentors help students explore opportunities for their future and, dependent on their grade, pursue graduation and higher education. Mentors are required to attend 10 program sessions within the semester. (Must be at least 18 years of age to volunteer.)
By selecting a weekly session, you understand you are committing to attend your assigned program on your assigned day each program week (roughly 10 program weeks each semester). You will miss sessions only in the event of an emergency. In the event you must miss a session, you will contact PAIR program staff and/or volunteer site leaders as directed. You understand that making this commitment means that your fellow volunteers and one or more students are depending on your attendance and support at sessions each program week.




Initial Interest and Availability: Other Special Opportunities
You may select multiple opportunities. Please feel free to provide comments related to your selection in the “Other” box, especially if you do not see an opportunity that fits your interests. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to customize additional opportunities for you but we would love to follow up with you to discuss additional interests and determine if we can find the right fit for you to get involved with PAIR!
