At World Relief Sacramento we prepare refugees for employment in the United States. Refugees arrive with a wide range of backgrounds and experiences and share the common goal of finding a job and becoming self-sufficient. 


Education about the American workplace

Workplace education provides the foundation for successful refugee employment. Our employment specialists orient refugees to American workplace norms through weekly job preparation classes. They cover topics such as common workplace vocabulary, appropriate attitudes for customer-service, and work schedules.

Practical experience through workshops

World Relief Sacramento often holds industry-specific workshops to further help refugees prepare for work in America. Our employment specialists and volunteers work closely with refugee clients so that refugees are prepared and feel confident for work.


Connecting with local employers

Our employment specialists provide local employers with pre-screened, hardworking, loyal, and drug-free candidates. By understanding an employer’s needs, the employment specialist hand-selects qualified candidates from a diverse pool, thus saving the employer time and money.  Many local employers trust World Relief Sacramento to continually provide excellent candidates and ongoing support for their staffing needs.
