Volunteer Opportunities

Conversational Connections (PDF) gives multilingual Ryerson University students an opportunity to practise conversational English in an informal setting. Volunteers are needed to meet with a student for approximately one hour per week over a term. This is a collaborative program with English Language Support (ELS), a unit of Ryerson Student Services.
