Kids Clubs

We offer tutoring programs for refugee children grades K to 8th. We help with all homework subjects as well as supplementing their reading and math. The children are also able to participate in various activities such as taekwondo, art, soccer, and dance. We also present the gospel story of redemption at every meeting.  Please fill out the volunteer application if you are interested in helping.


We offer preschool classes (ages 3-4) during our adult ESL sessions for the children of both our refugee students and volunteers in order to help prepare them for kindergarten in American schools. We teach fine and gross motor skills, social skills, pre-reading and math skills, and of course, the gospel of Christ! If you’d like to help in the preschool class, please fill out the volunteer application. Classes are located in Garland, TX.

Reading Program

We hold a summer-long reading program for children, which began in 2013 to help them improve their English and reading skills. We will also use this opportunity to take them on field trips and teach them the gospel. We serve around 350 children every summer with help from short-term mission teams from across the United States.

Swim Lessons

While most refugees live at apartment complexes with swimming pools, most of them do not know how to swim. It is extremely important to teach children how to swim for their safety. We teach over 100 children swim lessons each summer, and the kids love it!

Newcomer Classes

Many refugee youth come to the US unprepared for the public school system. They have often suffered from a lack of formal education as they have fled from their home countries and are, therefore, at a significant disadvantage academically. We offer a summer-long, intensive English program to help these students get prepared for the school year.

Counseling Services

For the Nations employs a licensed play therapist to provide in-house sessions for students who need extra emotional and mental care.

Support Services

In addition to our programs, we have dedicated staff who help refugee children and families access additional support provided by school districts, healthcare systems, and social services.
