ACC values the richness of our community, the voices and contributions of each member of the community, and the process of learning together.
We offer many opportunities to get directly involved in the resettlement process with refugee community members as well as build support.
Here at ACC, we provide case management, social service navigation, employment services, youth programming, employment training, health and education services, and a welcoming community. All of these programs are essential for new members of the community to begin rebuilding their new lives in Denver.
Get started by filling out a volunteer application. Additionally, all volunteers will be required to submit a background check and attend an orientation before they may begin volunteering.

Internship opportunities offer amazing hands on experience in a variety of roles. We accept internship applications on a rolling basis. We have 3 internship terms per year; spring/summer/fall. Each term lasts 3-4 months. We are currently accepting applications for the Spring term.
ACC is currently offering an $8/hour paid internship through COVA for applicants who are underrepresented in the victim-advocacy field, especially people of color, and/or refugee & immigrant community members. The position will work with the Family Stabilization Services team, who advocate for refugees from around the world who are facing issues involving mainly behavioral health, IPV and/or child welfare issues. Interns will only be considered if available for a 9-12 month commitment. Learn more about the position and how to apply by clicking on the tab below.
ACC's First Friends Program
ACC's First Friends Program matches Denver community members with refugee community members in order to build a friendship, which facilitates empowerment, enrichment, and cultural exchange. First Friends helps our community become a stronger place by building trust, support and connection.
In order to be considered as a First Friend, you must first apply to ACC as a volunteer. Once that has been completed you may ask to fill out a questionnaire which will help our First Friends Team find the right match for you. First Friends welcomes individuals, families, or small groups to take part.
Join us at our next orientation or one of our upcoming events. You are always welcome.
