With more than 26 nations represented in Nashville, you can experience and serve other cultures without even leaving the city! The Nashville Spring Break Team partners with World Relief, one of the refugee resettlement organizations in Nashville, to help newly arrived refugees learn about our great city.
Currently, refugees are required to hear certain pieces of information within the first few weeks of their arrival. Right now, 75 pages of brand new information is shared with them in the span of two hours. Imagine being in their shoes and how overwhelming this would be. We will help them get to know and feel more comfortable in their new home town through daily field trips to downtown, the library, the post office and more with a few fun Nashville things in the mix as well, using Nashville's MTA for most of it!
We also introduce them to certain agencies that will be valuable as they establish a new life such as Conexion Americas and Center for Refugees and Immigrants of Tennessee. No teaching experience is necessary. Just know how to speak English and have a heart for serving refugees!
