At CARE USA, onboarding is viewed as the overall integration of a new employee with CARE and our culture. This includes becoming familiar with the various tools and information needed to be a productive contributor, as well as meeting colleagues and establishing connections. For us onboarding is a comprehensive process that can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days. This page will be a useful resource to you as you are integrated into your role.


Orientation is the first step to beginning your journey with CARE. In order to ensure that you have a successful onboarding process, we have divided orientation into three parts.

Part I: The Basics is an introduction to the logistics of being a CARE employee, including your benefits and necessary paperwork. This course must be completed prior to your first day. Click here to get started!

Part II: The Organization is an in-depth course designed to offer a complete 360-degree perspective of CARE USA as an organization. This course offers a more in-depth look into CARE USA’s history, structure, and programming.

For US-based new hires this course takes place every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 9:30 AM (EST) in our Atlanta, Georgia Headquarters office you can attend in person or via Telepresence. Click here to enroll. All other staff, please ask your local HR colleagues about your in-house orientation.
