The benefits of volunteering work both ways and often it is the volunteer who gets more out of donating his or her time and effort. Volunteering means establishing great connections, building your career, and supplies a sense of purpose. Additionally Psychology Today even claims that those who regularly volunteer live longer and healthier lives.
The position would involve teaching English to adult immigrants at a pre-basic, basic or intermediate level. We currently need volunteers for both our 1:30 - 4:00 pm and 6:00 - 8:30 pm time slots, as little as once a week. No lesson planning is needed as all the materials will be prepared and supplied to you, and all assessment will be marked by your coordinator. We are happy to train those with no experience and supply training workshops to volunteers several times a year.
