As a non-profit organization, PRERNA relies heavily on volunteers who donate their time and talent. Our all-volunteer staff has grown to nearly 80 people who coordinate program services in the Bay Area and carry out projects remotely from around the world. In 2016, PRERNA’s volunteers contributed over 6,000 hours to help refugees and we are deeply grateful. 

If you would like to join our team as a volunteer, there are many opportunities available. Whether it is welcoming a refugee family on arrival and helping with their home needs or teaching English to children and adults, there are many ways to be directly involved with program services. You can also contribute in the areas of fund development, marketing or research. Many options are available for you to support PRERNA remotely. Here are some of the current openings available.
