About

Your unique collection of life experiences can make a tremendous impact on the lives of young people new to America. By volunteering as a mentor with Table Wisdom you will have the chance to cultivate invaluable relationships as a mentor while helping foreign born students and young professionals practice their conversational English skills.

It's as easy as signing up, getting paired, and starting a conversation. You and your mentee set the schedule and the student is expected to prepare topics for conversation. Our pairs talk about everything: from sports and culture to industry-specific skills and knowledge, what you discuss is up to you and your mentee. We do our best to pair people in similar disciplines so our mentees can learn from your career-specific experience, and you can learn more about what's new in your field.

By having fun yet meaningful conversations you will help students build their confidence and fluency in English. All you need is the ability to video chat and the desire to meet someone new.

Help a young foreign born person improve their quality of life in America.

"Although our lives are so different and perhaps distant, it is encouraging that there is so much that we share trying to be our best selves and making this a better world." -- Alan, mentor

"I feel so blessed to have met my excellent English language mentor. He always encourages me to speak out and taught me some idiomatic English which I didn't learn from a textbook." -- Zachary, mentee
