One of our favorite things about the Idaho Conference on Refugees is the workshops! Workshops allow for meaningful conversations and important trainings that bring us together and improve the work we do to build community.
Our next conference is coming up on Feb. 22 & 23 in Boise, and we are now accepting proposals from those who would like to lead a workshop.
Please learn more and apply here.
The Operations Coordinator will ensure that our work at the Idaho Office for Refugees reaches its fullest potential, both within our office and in the communities we serve. You will help us streamline our operations, set and track goals, create a bigger picture view of activities, and improve the efficiency of how we do things.
Your organization, precision, and attention to detail will enable us to have a greater statewide impact, a focus on outcomes, and stronger connection with our grantees and partners as we carry on the legacy of refugee resettlement in Idaho.
We're excited to introduce you to Whitney Alsallum, our new Donor & Volunteer Relations Coordinator. Whitney will be your go-to for questions on how to get involved and come alongside our work!
Whitney has been involved in the nonprofit space for over a decade, focusing on community engagement. She has a passion for refugee resettlement and encouraging inclusivity in and around Boise, her hometown.
She graduated from Boise State University with a bachelor's in communication and a minor in Arabic. Creating friendships with people from other cultures brings her joy, and she has been involved with Glocal, International Student programs, and local tutoring services to build those connections. Her last project was expanding a program called Serve the City, which managed relationships with nonprofits and connected people for a day of volunteering around the city every month.
Outside of work, Whitney enjoys spending time with her husband and their two sons, ages 6 and 1, and practicing Arabic.
Welcome, Whitney! Reach her at email@example.com.
