Would you recommend International Friendships, Inc.?
I was very excited to volunteer as an ESL conversation partner, but unfortunately you are only allowed to do so if you are a Christian. Though it does not mention this in the ad, a representative of the organization responded to my inquiry by stating:
"The students who sign up for a partner with us are expecting our volunteers to be active members of a local church. If for some reason you are unable to provide a reference then we
will not be able to approve you as a volunteer."
This might be a great opportunity for someone interested in promoting a Christian agenda, but prepare to be excluded if you are a Jew, Muslim, Hindu, non-believer, etc. Too bad; I really could have contributed a lot to their English education mission.
