Join us in welcoming Afghan families to Minnesota

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Alight! We are overwhelmed with gratitude for your help making Minnesota feel like home for newly arriving Afghan families.

Our volunteer opportunities for home set-up and warehouse support through the end of February are quickly filling up, but please feel free to sign up and add your name to the waitlist.

Additional opportunities for March and beyond are pending the timeline and needs of the state’s resettlement response.

Volunteer requirements

In order to ensure the safety of everyone we work with or serve, Alight requires compliance with COVID guidelines for all volunteers helping at our work sites. Volunteers will also go through a brief background check as part of the onboarding process. We will be in touch with more details regarding these requirements.

Minimum age to volunteer is 12 years old. Children under 16 must be accompanied at all times by an adult. All volunteers under 18 must have waivers signed by a parent or legal guardian prior to volunteer experience. Some volunteer activities, such as equipment use, will be available to children based on age.
Alight sees and helps every person make meaningful change in the world – from displaced and marginalized communities in Africa, Asia and the Americas to…anyone, anywhere.
