Do you enjoy meeting new people?
Do you like learning about other cultures?
Are you interested in supporting a new arrival (refugee or asylum seeker) to settle in South Australia?
Since 2006, Baptist Care SA’s Friendship Program has supported almost 800 refugees and asylum seekers to make a new life in South Australia by matching them to a local friend.
Participants spend 6 hours per month together practising English, sharing meals, discovering each other’s cultures and exploring Adelaide.
Over the past 12 years, we’ve seen some amazing things happen as people share their experiences, struggles and triumphs and form genuine friendships.
Volunteers who are over 22 and are living in, or willing to travel to the Northern suburbs are particularly in demand. We also have opportunities for volunteers to be matched with refugees and asylum seekers who are living in other parts of Adelaide.
The next training sessions for volunteers will take place on Monday 15 June and Monday 29 June from 6pm – 8.30pm at Enfield Baptist Church. It is free, fun and interactive.
