Volunteer Application
NICE is working to empower the refugee and immigrant population in Nashville through resettlement, employment, education, health and social services. We can’t do it alone. We need the heads, hands and hearts of committed people like you. Whether you want to volunteer with your family, friends, coworkers, or on your own, we can help you find the perfect opportunity.

Our Volunteer Process:

1.) Complete an online application. This allows us to get to know a little bit about you! After we go over your application, we will send you an email with an orientation date and time.

2.) Attend a general volunteer orientation. This is our chance to sit down and tell you a little bit more about us and what we do here at NICE, as well as put a face to the name!

3.) Placement and training. We do our best to put you into a volunteer position you will love while providing training to make sure you feel comfortable in your new role.

4.) Background check. This is a security precaution for the safety of our clients, NICE, and you!

5.) Begin volunteering! Now you’re ready to get out there and serve Nashville, all we ask is that you track your volunteer hours and report them back to us for our records!

Feel free to contact the Volunteer Coordinator with any questions at volunteer@empowernashville.org.
