Apply to our program

We are currently recruiting for virtual/remote and in-person classroom support volunteers. The in-home tutoring program needs volunteers who can work with newly arrived refugee students who need hands-on help as they prepare to enroll in online classes. If you would like to apply to volunteer with us as a classroom assistant, conversation partner, or in-home tutor, please complete the application at the link below. All volunteers in student contact roles are required to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

Please read these instructions carefully.

  • Conversation group volunteers should complete a classroom volunteer application.

  • See the links below for the volunteer applications.

  • 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.

  • 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.
