ESL Companion Volunteer Registration
The ESL Cafe is starting a new program we call ESL Companions in which we match up friendly established native English speakers with refugee and immigrant singles of the same sex or families looking for a local friend.

We envision working with locally established refugee/immigrant organizations to help identify good candidates for this pilot project. We would hope to match up volunteers with someone in their area. A leader or other volunteer from one of our organizations would be present for an initial meetup to help you get to know one another, then from there the volunteer and family would work out how their in-home get togethers would look.

Commitment for volunteers is 2 hours a week for a minimum of 2 months with the option to continue after this initial trial period.
