Thank you for your interest in becoming a Volunteer at One World for Love and Peace (OW4LP). Without your help we will not be able to meet the growing needs of our newly arriving Arab immigrants and refugees.

Volunteers are invaluable to this organization! You provide us with new ideas, energy, enthusiasm, skills and talents. Our Volunteer Program is made up mostly of people who live in the community and represent a variety of ages, ethnicities, cultures and languages. We appreciate and welcome the different experiences, perspectives and knowledge you bring to our organization.
