The Best Advice

On January 19th, a scattering of Nashville's most influential individuals from resettlement centers, the public school system, and community organizations who provide services to refugees, joined ESL to Go for our first advisory committee meeting.

The enthusiasm from everyone present and the expressed desire and NEED for this initiative bred creative and thoughtful ideas.

Here are some of our favorites:
-Open resume writing workshops
-Getting the word out via Metro Nashville Public Schools radio announcements and school board meetings
-Work in collaboration with companies that employ a large number of refugees to help both sides, the employers and refugees, better understand each other's needs

This project is truly a community effort. We are thankful for the strong and supportive individuals who empower this community.
