Volunteer at ISANS

Since 2012, the ISANS Volunteer Program has grown to support most of ISANS programs and clients. Volunteers help us create healthier, more welcoming, and more inclusive communities. ISANS volunteers are expected and encouraged to act as champions for newcomer inclusion in their own communities.
