Are you a Christian who has a heart for the growing international population of Middle Tennessee? Would you enjoy helping them learn English and empowering them to succeed? This is the opportunity for you!

Begin Anew is a faith-based education organization working to empower individuals to overcome obstacles caused by poverty by providing education, mentoring, and resources.

Begin Anew operates programs at four locations throughout Middle Tennessee (Woodbine, Downtown Nashville, Madison, and Franklin). Along with weekly Bible study and no-cost programming and care for our students’ children, we offer three education tracks in separate programs to men and to women:

• HSE (High School Equivalency) 

• ELL (English Language Learners) accommodating three levels of instruction

• Computer and Job Skills Training 

Under the guidance and direction of the Program Manager, ELL Teachers will:

• Provide effective instruction in English to a group of students at beginner, intermediate or advanced level using provided curriculum material. This will require some prep time outside of classroom hours.

• Work closely with and provide regular feedback to the Program Manager

• Develop relationships with students

• Uphold the mission, vision, and statement of faith of Begin Anew

We ask that our volunteers be comfortable working with people from different cultures and have a desire to care for students and assist them in achieving their goals. Some experience working with international populations is helpful in this role, but not necessary. The ability to speak a language other than English is not required.

Class days and times vary by location.  All our locations offer evening classes, and our Franklin location also offers daytime classes. We ask that volunteers commit to teaching one 2-hour class each week for an entire semester.

This position requires volunteers to complete an application and pass a background check. Training and resources will be provided to you by the Program Manager.
