As a refugee youth mentor, you will work with a mentee, aged 9-17, one-on-one to build confidence and social skills, assist with academic needs, and to welcome them fully to the Nashville community. Training is provided. Please contact our volunteer coordinator, Emily Sellers, for more information: esellers@cctenn.org; (615) 259-3567, ext. 1199.
