Volunteering Opportunities Outside Americana

Ambassador Program

We’re looking for committed volunteers who want to help refugee and immigrants in the community in a meaningful way. We’ll talk about how to get the community involved through events, conversation, and outreach. There will be a little marketing, event planning, social justice-ing, and everything in between. Come with some experience or none at all, but ready to contribute. We meet once a month and we ask that you commit to at least one year!

Advocate

Organize a lunch and learn or a dinner party to talk about Americana and the international community in Louisville. We’ll help!

Fundraiser

Whether your goal is to raise $2,100 for the playground repair or $250 for garden tools, it would be a tremendous help. The Director of Development would be happy to assist and support you in your planning. Contact her at clare@americanacc.org.
