We're looking for volunteers to engage in conversation group activities with our adult English learners at our Bryant location (2709 Popkins Lane; Alexandria, VA 22306) on Friday mornings, starting May 6 or 13, and ending Friday, June 24. Volunteers will have the opportunity to visit several classrooms during the Friday morning class sessions (9:00 a.m.-12:15 p.m.), and talk with adult English students from beginning to advanced levels. Engaging conversation activities and topics will be planned for each session by the Lead Teacher at the site.
This volunteer opportunity is open to anyone who is interested in helping recent immigrants and foreign residents improve their English through casual conversation. Experience working with non-native English speakers is helpful, but not required.
