Frequently Asked Questions



  • Can I volunteer?

    Yes! Nest Global is looking for volunteers to work in their Nest locations in Greece and Mexico. As a “Nester,” you’ll join local teachers in working directly with children in the classroom for a shift typically ranging from one week to three months and receive ongoing training and mentorship throughout. Visit Nest Global’s website to learn more.

  • How many children and families are you serving?

    Since its inception in 2018, Nest Global has enrolled 7,000 children and families in school programs, parenting workshops, and parent & me programs. Nest Global currently operates 18 classrooms, spanning 3 continents and has provided over 100,000+ hours of education worldwide.

  • How do you decide where to work?

    The UNHCR estimates that there are currently over 3.7 million migrant and refugee children worldwide who do not have access to education. When considering where to focus its efforts, Nest Global prioritizes areas with a high density of young children who have zero access to education and only work in collaboration with established community organizations who provide a physical space, assist with daily operations, and offer invaluable local knowledge.

  • How do transition-age foster youth learn about First Place for Youth?

    Transition-age foster youth typically hear about First Place for Youth through their social worker, one of First Place’s partner organizations, or word of mouth through their friends and other personal connections.
