About the Event

Encourage, support, and work along side someone who is on their citizenship journey, helping them with the very specific English involved in passing their test.  Volunteers work one on one, scheduling a weekly time that works best for both parties.  You can meet at our office during our office hours, meet in the library or coffee shop, or at a home.  We will provide training for the process and once you are comfortable, we will get you connected with one of our students who is ready for some extra help.  

Covid:  We are only pairing fully vaccinated volunteers in this program.  We are also requesting that our clients be fully vaccinated to participate in the program.

Training:  We have a couple of trainings for this program!  Please join us for Beyond Babble on December 2nd.  You can sign up for that here:
