Drop by We Are New York's table in the Diana Center to learn more about volunteer opportunities with We Are New York! The We Are New York Project brings together community organizations and volunteers to offer free English conversation groups in neighborhoods around New York City. Using We Are New York, the groups discuss issues that most concern immigrants. The project empowers adult immigrants by informing them about city resources, while helping them learn English.
Scheduling is flexible with evening and weekend placement options in all five boroughs. The only requirements are that the volunteer knows English, is outgoing, is interested in New York’s diverse immigrant population, and attends two 3-hour trainings. Volunteers facilitate conversation groups 2 hours a week for 10 weeks or 4 hours a week for 5 weeks.
Part I: Monday, November 7th
Part II: Thursday, November 10th
*Please Note that all of the trainings will be from 6pm to 9pm and will be held at 100 Gold Street in Manhattan. Volunteers must attend Part I and Part II before leading a conversation group.
