Join us for a week of exciting and educational events showcasing the artists, designers, musicians, filmmakers, authors, fashion and beauty changemakers who are lighting up our screens and airwaves to shift our consciousness and conversations for good.
We are looking for bilingual Burmese/English volunteers to serve Burmese-speaking communities in Oregon, and potentially throughout the US. Volunteers will be tasked to do translation and interpretation, run Torus social media specifically for Burmese speakers, provide access to resources for Burmese-speaking communities, be a Torus liaison, recruitment of English learners, and more. Due to COVID19, everything will be done online.
Volunteers do not have to participate in all Torus Ambassador roles.

The individuals in these meetups are not English learners but people who want to learn other languages such as Russian, Japanese, Spanish, etc.

Torus bridges gaps between people and communities by facilitating transformative experiences of language and culture sharing.
Torus was founded in 2020 by a refugee who was born in Kabul, Afghanistan, raised in Moscow, Russia, and lives in Portland, Oregon. Torus bridges gaps between people and communities by facilitating transformative experiences of language and culture exchange. We do this work through our seven programs. We believe in connectivity and a sense of belonging to a community for immigrants and refugees, as well as anyone who has been living in the US for generations.
