What's going on in 2009?

There is so much going on this year we are absolutely looking forward to God's plans for us this year. If you need a place to volunteer or hang out with people that might be a bit different from you, do not look any further. This year there are very many different opportunities for you to volunteer with us, whether you are a student or a family looking for an activity to do as a family. Here is the list of what's going on this year, please do not hesitate to ask for further information.

Are you interested in Teaching English? 
Our ESL classes are geared towards adults who don't speak english. I call it the survival english because this is very essential to survive in this country. Our English classes are held all over Nashville, we currently have three venues with classes:
1. First Presbyterian Church of Nashville (Franklin Rd): Wednesdays 6:00pm-7:15pm ( this class is closed, only FPC members can volunteer).
2. Christ Church (Old Hickory): 2009 schedule to be determined
3. Refugee Training Center (Off White Bridge Rd): Tuesdays 6:00pm-7:30pm

Homework Club.
It's easy, it's fun, it's absolutely worth 2 hours of your day! You can come alone or bring friends, or your family. This program helps 1st grade-10th grade students, it's amazing how much you can learn from these children. This is held at our Refugee Training Center (5800 Maudina Avenue, Nashville 37209) Mondays-Thursdays 3:30pm-5:30pm

Summer Soccer Camp.
Come play soccer with the african nations! This past summer we had a month long soccer camp which included refugees from different african nations, it was amazing and absolutely great. We are doing it again this summer, so feel free to join us. (Dates will to be announced soon)

This past summer African Leadership Refugee Ministry organized a half day VBS for african refugee children ages 5-12. Fifty-five children from different african nations attended, it was amazing and am thankful no child got hurt! We are doing it again this year, and we are hoping to make it bigger. If you are interested please email Aimee Abizera the volunteer coordinator at
