This video is a tool that you can use to recruit and energize volunteers for your organization. Through interviews with volunteers, the video establishes the importance of welcoming refugees and discusses all of the benefits that volunteers receive from giving their time to an organization that serves refugees.

At the end of each section of the video, a question will appear on the screen to encourage dialogue and reflection. If the video is being used on a group setting, the facilitator should pause the video and have participants share their answers with a partner or in small groups. Facilitators can also share more information and local facts and stories to expand the impact of the video. It also encourages volunteers to share their positive experiences with friends, family, and neighbors.

Thank you to the Refugee Youth Project of Baltimore City Community College and volunteer speakers Emmanuel, Lisa, Nikki, and Megan for everything you did to make this project a success.
