Apply to our program

Please read these instructions carefully.
  • This is not an online/electronic form. Print out the  application for the program that interests you. 
  • Conversation group volunteers should complete a classroom volunteer application.
  • Applications may be submitted by email attachment or regular US mail.
  • See the list of attachments at the bottom of this page.
  • Please do not submit both applications unless your intention is to volunteer in both programs simultaneously.
  • There is no need to include a resume or cover letter with your application. All of the information we need is on the application.
  • You will be contacted by email within 48 hours of your application's arrival in our office. If you don't hear from us, please call. We do not have access to a fax machine. A hard copy sent via US mail may be old fashioned, but it continues to be the most reliable way to go.
  • Please note that we do not offer support (practicum, 20-hour observation, etc.) for those completing TEFL certification programs. If this is your intention in applying to our program, please understand that we will not complete any course-related documents, assessments, or endorsements on your behalf. No letters confirming participation in the volunteer program will be issued prior to completion of the four-month commitment.

Not yet scheduled.
The next session will likely be in mid-March 2019, depending on need.
Orientations will be scheduled approximately every 4-6 weeks, based on need.

Complete details will be provided once your application has been received.

Registration is required. Please don't "just show up" to a training. You will not be permitted to stay.


Training sessions are open only to those who are planning to participate in these programs. We cannot accommodate guests who are seeking professional development or training to use in a different program.

Once we have received your application, the volunteer manager will contact you. All volunteers are also required to complete a criminal background check prior to starting a volunteering assignment. More details about this will be provided prior to your start date. In-home tutors must complete the entire training prior to being assigned to a student.

Please either scan your completed application to a PDF (not a photo/JPEG file) and send it via email, or submit the form via U.S. mail. Please do not include a resume with your application; submitting a completed application is enough. Thanks!
