 One of the great things that ReEstablish Richmond does is helping refugees and immigrants learn how to get around the Richmond and surrounding areas. One of these ways is through a DMV approved Learner’s Permit class. These classes are held in a classroom setting and are taught in the native languages of the students. These classes are held on a weekly basis and are made possible by local volunteers. Childcare is also provided as needed. Our current class make-up: 16 students from Afghanistan, 5 preschool aged children in the nursery,  1 teacher, 1 interpreter, and 10 community volunteers who help drive clients and provide childcare.
