Svitlo United States Volunteer


Svitlo ( is a US-based non-profit bringing information transparency and resource coordination to the Ukrainian refugee resettlement effort across a complex landscape of government and nonprofit organizations.

Svitlo is occupying a unique and important niche identifying, researching and centralizing important information about benefits, housing, job search, and other services Ukrainians need to make a new life in the US.

In addition to that, you would need to be proactive, curious, creative, and collaborative.

This is a volunteer opportunity that would require about 10-15 hours per week.
