Create an AUA University Chapter

We are seeking leaders on college campuses or community organizations ready to mobilize for peace and cultural understanding.

CHAPTER PRESIDENTS: THE HEART OF OUR ORGANIZATION

BECAUSE CHANGE BEGINS WITH YOU.

At a time when American and global leaders are shutting their doors to refugees, we need to stand up and demonstrate we care about them and provide essential support during their time of crisis. As an AUA University Chapter Leader, you will be a galvanizing force to empower others in your university community to help refugees not only through volunteer work abroad, but also through advocacy and activism at home.

MENTORING

we’re with you.

If you feel passionate about helping refugees, but don’t know where to start, don’t worry — we’ll be with you every step of the way. AUA University Chapter Leaders are the heart of our organization, and we’re here to support you in your crucial work mobilizing your community to volunteer abroad. We will help you with the logistics of creating a chapter, share ideas for utilizing chapter meetings to prepare participants for their work abroad, and support you and your group as you seek to share your life-changing experiences upon your return home. With our full-time teams on-the-ground, we make sure your team is skillfully, sensitively, and effectively supporting at the refugee camps while also amplifying their voices before, during, and long after your time there.
