COVID-19 Update

In response to COVID-19, the Institute’s in-person volunteer program is very limited. Our top priority is the safety of our volunteers, clients and staff. We will be working with a limited number of volunteers during COVID-19 in remote volunteer roles. If you are interested in filling out a volunteer application now, it will be stored in our database until we can resume volunteer recruitment. Signing up for our e-newsletter is a great way to learn when roles resume. Look for the “Newsletter Signup” button in the top right corner of this page.

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the International Institute of Minnesota! Our biggest needs from a volunteer include the ability to commit for a minimum of three months, having regular weekly availability, and having a passion for making Minnesota a more welcoming place.
