Volunteering

Volunteers are the ambassadors of Canada because they introduce not only English language but also Canadian culture to newcomers. Our volunteers’ dedication and contributions allow us to provide even more comprehensive services to our clients.  We would like to thank all of the Calgarians who are currently volunteering or have volunteered in the past with us to help new immigrants find a sense of belonging in Canada through improved overall communication skills and a better understanding of Canadian culture.

Volunteering opportunities in Calgary Immigrant Educational Society include:

  1. ESL Tutor: to teach an ESL class of 6-12 students, afternoon or evening on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, 2.5 hours/class; can schedule around your schedule.
