Interested in supporting community members who are learning English?
Become a volunteer conversation group facilitator and provide a valuable opportunity for English language learners to practice conversation skills.
Volunteers meet once a week online or in-person with small groups of adults of various levels to practice and enhance listening, understanding, and speaking skills in an encouraging and supportive environment. Participants become more confident and feel better prepared to interact in everyday situations, such as talking with a doctor, a child’s teacher or neighbor, or preparing for a job interview. Additional benefits include an increased sense of community belonging for everyone involved, including the volunteer!
Long-time volunteer, Diana, shares, "It’s an opportunity for lifelong learning - for learners and for volunteers - we’re doing it together. You meet wonderful people, a diverse group of friends from all over the world. And it’s fun! If your idea of fun is growing, sharing, and discovering things, and learning more about language and culture, volunteering is a wonderful experience!"
If you’re interested in volunteering, or curious about learning more (no obligation), we would be delighted to hear from you. For more information or to sign up for the next Volunteer Orientation, please click the * I Want to Help* button and we'll happily respond.
