Volunteer to Help Refugee Women – Students Organize for Syria

October 16, 2018

Students Organize for Syria

Brown University’s chapter of the international organization called Students Organize for Syria (SOS) has launched a peer to peer ESL (English as a Second Language) training program for Syrian refugee women based in Providence, where students enrolled at Brown teach weekly English lessons. These women do not have access to personal transport which gets in the way of their getting to class, taught at the Refugee Dream Center in downtown Providence.

If you own a car, or know someone who does, you can help by signing up for flexible shifts every week, to drive them to their classes and/or back. This is not a full time commitment, and you can volunteer as and when your schedule permits you to.  Please email- sosatbrown@gmail.com or message the SOS Brown Facebook page if you are interested.
