Open opportunities at Multicultural Refugee Coalition

The Multicultural Refugee Coalition provides a Resource day on the first Saturday of each month. Families receive many resources including free childcare, citizenship test prep, and English practice. In addition, companies such as Google, HEB, and Indeed provide representatives from the Austin area to aid refugees in the job application process. From my own personal experience, I met many people from a variety of backgrounds who shared their stories with me as well as some delicious home-made food! I tried a rice dish called Biryani for the first time and loved it!

Open opportunities at Multicultural Refugee Coalition

MRC hosts an English as a second language class right before a sewing class for women of all ages. You don't need any experience as a teacher, you just need an open mind and patience. This particular day we worked on long and short vowels in the beginner ESL class. I left the workshop with the satisfaction of meeting a new friend from Afganistan whom I hope to see again in the future sessions.

Volunteer Opportunities at Yellow Bike Project

Worked on quite possibly the most difficult bike maintenance task and... succeeded! The shop leaders were very encouraging and informative. Truing a wheel only took a few hours of patience and determination. I now know the difference between lateral and radial truing! YBP is a great place to practice and enhance your maintenance skills while being surrounded by supportive community members.

Gardening 101 Class - Concho Community Garden - Wednesdays

I wish I had known about this garden sooner! I wish it was talked about at orientation! The people are knowledgable, fun, and charismatic. I will be going back to learn more as often as I can. (:
