As part of national volunteer week, Refugee Utility Project would like to thank all of our hard-working volunteers – whose efforts continue to pave the way, not only the maintenance of our site, but for getting involved in a number of our other projects and activities.
To anyone who may be considering volunteering with us, our goal is simple: To aid the refugee crisis in Syria and its neighboring territories. We want motivated students with a real passion to do good in the world. The conditions faced by many refugees are no joke, and are often laden with mortal dangers and devastating life-long ramifications.
You – whoever or where ever you are – can help these people. You don't have to drop out of school and join the peace corps or hop on the next jet to Syria (If you don't want that is!); You can help us remotely by raising awareness through the formation of a RUP branch/group in your own university. This is a great opportunity to make a real impact and develop leadership and planning skills. Your actions and opinions will help mold the structure of our organisation, with every idea contributing to our growth – even if you only plan on working with us for a short period of time, the skills and experience will seriously bolster your resume in the job market, especially in roles featuring people management.
After all, as President Nixon himself once said: “I call upon all communities throughout the United States to recognize volunteers by observing the week with special ceremonies to honor those who have given countless hours for the betterment of our communities and the American way of life.”
All we ask In return of any prospective volunteers: To help us spread our word, and give the world understanding about the refugee crisis. If you think you'd be interested in making a real impact on the situation in Syria, and bettering real people's lives, please follow the link below.
