Nations Ministry Center is a non-profit serving the Nashville refugee community. We help refugee children become grade-level readers through targeted language development and homework assistance.

Volunteers in our program tutor students on their homework and Lexia (an online reading program that provides individualized English instruction), as well as participate in project-based learning and recreation times with the youth. Volunteers should be compassionate toward the refugee experience, enthusiastic about helping students meet learning goals, and willing to participate in classroom activities.

Due to the relational aspect of our program, volunteers are asked to choose one consistent day a week to serve. Our elementary program meets Monday-Thursday 3:15-6:15p at Hillcrest United Methodist Church while school is in session.

Please note that volunteers will be provided with an orientation process prior to serving. Individuals 18 or over must pass a background check.

To volunteer, you can fill out our volunteer application at www.nationsministrycenter.org/volunteer.

If you have any questions, please contact Brianna Persinger at brianna@nationsministrycenter.org.

Mission Statement

Nations Ministry Center helps refugee families become generationally successful.

Description

A refugee has fled persecution. They have survived wars, trauma, and deprivation, and lived in the uncertainty of refugee camps. Resettled by the US government, they have been given a chance for a better life.

But obstacles remain.

Nations Ministry Center is committed to helping refugees rebuild their lives. Having provided nearly two decades of support to families in Nashville, Nations Ministry Center has established a long-standing partnership with families in the community. We provide educational support and immigration assistance so that refugee families can be generationally successful.
