ConvoPartners Program

Learning about American culture through conversation! Apply Here

We need you!

Every semester, and during the summer, new students enroll at the Intensive English Institute (IEI) and ask to be matched with native speakers as ConvoPartners. Each semester we need about 100 to 120 ConvoPartner volunteers. We hope you can help our students improve their English through conversation by meeting with them for only ONE hour each week. You can make new friends and experience the world from another viewpoint. It's also an experience you can add to your resume.

What are the expectations?

You can become a volunteer for the ConvoPartners Program by completing this online form. As soon as we find a match for you (usually during the first week of the semester), we’ll let you know how to contact your new ConvoPartner(s).  Thanks!
