Our previous fiscal year, our Board of Directors, our staff and 110 volunteers contributed a total of 10,828 hours to our Society. We are fortunate to have a group of dedicated volunteers for all of our programs, especially our ESL volunteer tutors who play a vital role in the success of Drop-In ESL program. Without their commitment, we would not be able to offer and run the program at all. Their dedication and commitment have a tremendous impact on the adult immigrants who come to our Society not only for learning English language, but also understanding Canadian culture. The more positive interactions new Canadians have with other Calgarians, the easier it would be for them to find a sense of belonging in Canada.
Therefore, each of our volunteers’ support is significant and collectively becomes the most valuable asset of CIES. Thanks to each and ever one of you. CIES could not be the organization it is today without you!
