Volunteer your Time

Current volunteer opportunities

Please contact Gabrielle Short at [email protected] for current opportunities.

We are always looking for volunteers, and encourage you to look over the opportunities we can offer:

RIAC offers internships to qualified applicants on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested, please contact [email protected] with the following information:
a) A paragraph describing what you hope to gain through this internship
b) A description of any internship requirements/guidelines
c) Your proposed time period and hours per week
c) Your resume
Please place [internship] in the subject line of your email.

Front Desk
RIAC can offer low-intensity (but important!) volunteer assignments at the front desk in our Boston offices to volunteers available a few hours a week during business hours. By taking calls and completing small tasks you help our staff be more effective in their work. This is also an avenue to get to know the ins and outs of RIAC, which may lead to other opportunities. Please contact [email protected] with [front-desk] in the subject line of your email.

Evenings and Weekends
Over the course of the past year, we have become increasingly realistic about the opportunities we can offer casual volunteers. RIAC is not a charity in the conventional sense, and much of our work is office-based or highly erratic. As such, we struggle to find rewarding opportunities for evening/weekend volunteers. We are, however, working to build a community partnership program to connect recently arrived families with community members to assist with cultural orientation. If you are interested, please contact [email protected] to learn more.

Are you a faith-based or community-based group who would like to work with us? We are more than willing to coordinate fundraisers and other events with outside groups. Please contact [email protected] with [group] in the subject line of your email.

Are interested in an opportunity to get deeply involved with RIAC? Coordinating volunteers is challenging, rewarding, and one of the opportunities that RIAC would like to seize. If you have time on your hands, and an interest in making this position your own, please contact [email protected] with [coordinating] in the subject line of your email.
