A 2-4 hour hands-on learning experience in downtown Nashville that involves interactive discussions about the causes, effects, and realities of homelessness, ways to break cycles of poverty and homelessness, a scavenger hunt in the downtown area, and a walking tour of some of the places downtown that are important in the lives of the un-housed community. Some places we visit include the Downtown Public Library, Church Street Park, downtown churches, the Nostos Art Gallery in the Arcade (when it’s open), and sites from the Civil Rights movement. This can be geared toward any age group. To support our work, we ask for a $15 per person donation for immersions or an in-kind donation of supplies. To schedule an immersion, please fill out this form.
