International Rescue Committee: Speakers Bureau Coaches Needed

The International Rescue Committee’s Speakers Bureau is a group primarily made up of IRC volunteers and former refugees who speak about refugee issues at community events, schools, businesses, places of worship, universities and local organizations. This position, the Speakers Bureau Coach, asks volunteers to be mentors and resources for refugees preparing to tell their stories. Coaches will provide encouragement and support as refugees use their stories to educate the Seattle community. The IRC is looking for people with positive energy, respectful attitudes, and public speaking/tutoring experience to fill this Volunteer Coaching Position. The time commitment for Coaches varies depending on the Speakers and the current event calendar. However, coaches should be available for 2-5 hours a week when working with their assigned Speaker. Please contact Mara Silvers (406-459-1807) or Erika Grantier (erika.grantier@rescue.org) if you’re interested in this experience or have any questions.
