new students

Over the past 8-10 months, Re:new has received dozens of new applications from refugee women for our curriculum training program. We are thrilled! Every Friday, these new students are trained by Nancy Black, one of our Master Teachers at Re:new. They are doing a great job and working hard!
New Students
The majority of these women are from Burma and Bhutan. Take a look at a globe and locate these countries and think about coming to suburban Chicago from such a faraway place. Why are they here and how can we relate to these neighbors of ours? Learn about Burma and Bhutan. Read Katie's story, as told by Anna Thompson. It's also a story of how a seed of friendship has been sown between these two ladies. Every day we are learning new stories and growing our community at Re:new. Join us in welcoming these new students when you see them!
