English Language Learner (ELL) Program In-person Volunteer

Are you passionate about languages? Do you enjoy learning about other cultures? If so, you might be a perfect match to volunteer with our English Language Learners Conversation Classes.

Volunteers 18+ are needed to help facilitate in person Beginner or Intermediate English Language Learner conversation classes in September. The purpose is to help people whose first language is not English practice their English conversation skills.

The classes will be on Saturday mornings from 9:30-11AM beginning September. The volunteers will shadow ELL Virtual Facilitators this summer on Tuesday nights from to 6:30-7:45PM to prepare. Then, the volunteer will be given a chance to facilitate some classes. The goal is to prepare the volunteer to facilitate a class for 5-8 students in person from September - December 2022.

Fluency in English, comfortability with public speaking, and computer skills are required. Volunteers must commit to an entire fall trimester (four months) of classes. Each volunteer facilitator will receive a picture dictionary and headset to use during online classes training.
