Being part of Refugee bettered my life. I witnessed BYU’s love for refugees ignite as volunteers multiplied with each service event. I was able to become friends with individuals who fled from their homelands seeking refuge here; their beautiful cultures and inspiring stories pricked my heart.

–Candice LeSueur

I joined Y-Serve because I needed 10 hours of service for a class. But what I came away with was new friends, a deeper relationship with my Savior, and a more balanced life. I feel more well-rounded, happy, and spiritually alive when I serve. I am so happy I am doing this!!

–Abraham Smith-Driggs
