After you apply, we will work to match you with a volunteer who fits your needs. We cannot guarantee placement. There may be a delay until a volunteer is available.

Who are the Volunteers?

Our volunteers are ordinary, friendly people who love God and love their neighbors. They value relationships and enjoy spending time with people from other cultures.


Students from Sattler College in Boston

What could a session look like?

Your conversation partner will work with you to find a comfortable meeting spot. This could be a coffee shop, cafe, park, your volunteer’s home, or the Bridge English Training Center. You also have the option to meet online via Zoom or Google Meet.


Conversations will be informal. The goal of your first session will be to get to know each other. Later sessions may cover a range of topics that you and your partner are interested in discussing.
