CASP’s mission is “to provide basic needs and a supportive community for those in the process of seeking asylum in the U.S.”

Volunteers are the core of that supportive community and a welcoming, healthy, and successful experience for our guests.

Getting started

If you’re considering becoming a volunteer, we invite you to take a look at our sign-up form (here), and see if there are activities that interest you. If you find some (or if you’d like to propose “Others”), fill out the form, and click the “SUBMIT” button at the bottom of the page. You will then be guided through the rest of the sign-up process.

If you should need to interrupt the process, you can return at a later time to Step 2 by clicking here and to Step 3 by clicking here.

If you prefer using paper versions of this process, you may download, print, fill out, and mail to the CASP office the sign-up form (available here) and the signature page of the Volunteer Handbook (available here). CASP’s office is located at 44 School Street Extension, Bellows Falls, VT 05101.

If you’re already a volunteer …

If you’re involved in public outreach for CASP, please familiarize yourself with a fact sheet (available here) about CASP and the people we serve.

When you do volunteer work for CASP, please help CASP in its grant-seeking efforts by periodically logging your hours and mileage. This can be done:

  • online (here) – in which case we suggest you make a note of the date, so that you will know the starting point for your next data entry
  • by printing a paper copy (available here) and following the instructions on it

Have questions?

If you have questions about volunteering or about logging your hours and mileage, please feel free to write to us at
