Conversations Unbound, Inc (“CU”) seeks a new member to join the CU team this May/June 2021! 


Conversations Unbound, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, empowers forcibly displaced individuals as paid online Arabic, Spanish, French, German, or cultural course tutors for college students. More than just a language conversation program, CU is a means for cultural exchange, sharing of ideas, and narrative shift. Our dynamic, hard-working, and innovative volunteer team thrives on a start-up, entrepreneurial spirit, and dedication to facilitating meaningful cross-cultural relationships. We believe that learning from forcibly displaced tutors challenges traditional hierarchies of education by centering migrants as producers of knowledge.
