Women of the World is excited to welcome volunteers and donors from all walks of life interested in building communities on trust and self-reliance. Our programs rely on the support of our mentors, to befriend our new neighbors and teach them the necessary skills and give them the social networks that ensure they will succeed on their own. Our organization is dependent on the benevolence of others to continue to make an impact locally and—through the service of those most impacted by the world’s inhumanity—ultimately make the world a better place.
Below is the typical process for volunteering with Women of the World. If you have any questions, contact the Office Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org

If you are hoping to have a long-term volunteering opportunity, we ask that all prospective volunteers meet with a Case Manager to be paired with a client or an office need

We rely on your generosity and support to continue to provide services to all forcibly displaced women-- be they refugee, immigrant, asylee, and undocumented.
Women of the World does not accept used donations. Donations of new products are accepted on an "as needed" basis. Typically, we ask that donated items be in quantities of 100-200 in order to be equitable in administering the items to our Ladies!
If you have a question about an item(s) you would like to donate, contact or call our office at 801-953-0008.
The most powerful tool we can give to a woman is her independence. With this in mind, Women of the World encourages perspective donation drives to focus on gift cards to large chains or department stores. (Places like Walmart, Target, Smiths, Ross, TJMax) Gift cards to these locations allow women to buy items that meet their specific needs, sizes, styles, and preferences.
Because items such as feminine hygiene products are not covered under SNAP (food stamp) benefits, Women of the World does accept donations of large quantities of household items. Items like paper towels, surface cleaners, laundry and dish soap, feminine hygiene products (pads), deodorant, and toilet paper are happily accepted!
