Did you know there is an English Language Learners (ELL) program at Grace? Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings, about 30 participants arrive to practise conversational English with Canadian volunteers.
The ELL program is a very basic and easy way for people to connect. It is about creating a comfortable place for people to practise conversation and build confidence. For the volunteers, it is a humbling eye-opener to see the determination and achievements of newcomers to Canada.
Interested in Volunteering?
The program is thriving and meets a real need in our community. Anyone who would like to volunteer – one morning a week or even just once in a while – is encouraged to email Julie Clayton at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cindy Stephenson at email@example.com.
Volunteering at ELL is a very simple way to be who you are, use what you have and do what matters. And the bonus is, you’ll probably make some new friends along the way!
