Tutor 20-year-old refugee nursing student
Bethany Christian Services
We are looking for a volunteer tutor with nursing experience who could work with one of our refugee foster care youth on a weekly basis. This youth is a 20-year-old from the Democratic Republic of Congo. She has been in the United States since September of 2015. This youth is a student at Grand Rapids Community College, and she plans to apply for their nursing program sometime this year. Her case manager shared, "She is such a hard worker and so kind. Anyone with nursing experience would be a great help."

Bethany demonstrates the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting children, empowering youth, and strengthening families through quality social services.
For refugees fleeing danger, the search for safety can be extremely challenging. And too often, people become numbers in a system that can feel impossible to navigate. That’s why we guide, protect, advocate for, and support refugees. In the U.S., we offer resettlement and continued support services in strategic locations.
Bethany Christian Services' Refugee and Immigrant Services program encompasses adult and family resettlement as well as refugee foster care for Unaccompanied Children and Unaccompanied Refugee Minors. Our services for unaccompanied refugee youth include case management, counseling, housing (foster homes, group homes, independent living), classes (New Arrival, Life Skills, driver's training), and volunteer mentoring and tutoring.
