What is Refugee?
The Refugee program provides students with meaningful service opportunities that will benefit refugees around the world.
“This moment does not define them, but our response will help define us.”
—Elder Patrick Kearon
How do I get involved?
Events are held weekly on Wednesday nights from 7-9 pm at the Wilkinson Center Terrace!
No Y-Serve training required to volunteer with this program.
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.
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!!
