Begin Anew of Middle Tennessee empowers individuals to overcome obstacles caused by poverty by providing education, mentoring and resources. We serve women and men of all faiths and nationalities, between the ages of 19 and 56, who are undereducated or underemployed. These individuals do not have what they need to live adequately and have multiple barriers blocking their progress. Begin Anew’s goal is to help these individuals obtain self-sufficiency through employment, job training, education, housing, transportation, childcare, and medical care. The student chooses from one of four curriculums for weekly classes, High School Equivalency (HiSet), Computer and Job Skills, English as a Second Language (ESL), or Literacy. Free childcare is provided for children of students during class time. When students enroll, they develop their own Goal Plans to reach employment, educational, and personal goals.
Begin Anew relies on more than 250 volunteers to accomplish our goals and serve our students. Volunteer opportunities include ongoing support, one-time tasks or serving as a group. Check out the list below and also our current volunteer opportunities to get involved!
Volunteers are very appreciated at CWJC. The staff is great! Very friendly. If you are looking for a place to really make a difference in real lives of women and children, this is perfect! They always have a need - you will not be wasting your time by coming to help.
CWJC truly serves those who come there for assistance in a holistic way, showing genuine care for entire lifestyles to improve. The staff is friendly and focused on service. God has used my time volunteering here for personal growth and for the benefit of the ladies and children that we serve. I thank the Lord for CWJC and what He is doing in changing the lives of those who come there for help and of those who choose to volunteer.
