The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
We are looking for volunteers with some tutoring or teaching experience. The English Conversation Cafe is an informal group of learners that gathers once a week to practice English verbal skills. The program is geared towards those at an intermediate level and who are conversant in English, and is not meant to be an ESL class for beginners. As there is no set curriculum, Café facilitators have the freedom to develop their own materials, look for resources online or browse through our collection of materials for ideas on activities.
This opportunity is currently offered in Del Mar (Tuesdays, 4:30pm to 5:45pm), Solana Beach (Wednesday, 12:30pm to 2pm), Encinitas (Thursdays, 6pm to 7:30pm), Fallbrook (flexible times), Poway (flexible times), Valley Center (flexible times), and Ramona (flexible times). You're welcome to observe a session in one of our branches and see for yourself what a fun experience this could be for you!
