Center for Families English Conversation Circles

The Center for Families will be hosting a group of 20-30 adults who have completed two phases of classes and are ready to increase their competency in the English language.

We are looking for committed volunteers to help lead discussions in English with our adult participants to help them practice and learn English. We are interested in volunteers who can volunteer weekly for 20 weeks.

Time Commitment: An hour and a half per week for 20 weeks (July 23 through December 3, with no programming on September 3). 
Specific Dates: Monday nights from 6-7:30 pm

Last year, volunteers invested over 10,800 hours of their time into Urban Ventures. That's the equivalent FIVE full-time staff members!
