Conversation Club is designed for newcomer youth to Canada. Our main goals are to create meaningful relationships, provide support to understand society and cultural diversity and to increase written and oral English skills. Our program will see a volunteer working with 2-3 youth at a time in group work and activities, including small presentations, homework help, and group games. The conversation cafe will take place at John A. McDougall School (10930 107 St NW). Understanding or fluent in Nepali and/or Somali is an asset! 


Our start/end dates are flexible, but we encourage you to volunteer the full year as our students rely on your commitment to their success! This program will allow volunteers to gain experience providing academic supports and language skills to newcomer youth, while simultaneously learning about their experiences in being new to our society.
