Conversations in English Volunteer

Our Conversations in English program is looking for new volunteer substitute facilitators to support our conversation sessions. Substitutes may have the opportunity to sub as often as once a week or as infrequently as once a month, depending on program need and volunteer availability.

Conversations in English (CIE) volunteers provide English learners with opportunities to practice their speaking and listening skills in a friendly and informal environment. Most groups currently meet remotely via the BoulderReads Zoom account. Our goal is that participants come together and practice their conversational skills in a supportive environment.
