Community Advocates

Become a Community Advocate and use your talents and energy to make a real impact!

Advocates work with local artists, businesses, schools and more to launch events that will help change the lives of refugees around the world. Hold an art exhibit at a local gallery; host a speaker's series at your university; or coordinate a film festival; or do something completely original!

If you have been wanting to get involved but weren’t sure how, the Community Advocates program gives you the opportunity to change the world from your own backyard!
