Volunteer Opportunity: Syrian Refugee Project
The Syrian Refugee Project was started by Jim Estill, CEO of Danby Appliances, to sponsor over 50 Syrian families to resettle in Guelph. Currently within the project, a strong focus is developing to strengthen the ESL learning of the families, as some are advancing quickly, but others are still struggling. They are looking for ESL teachers who may be interested in volunteering with the project.
Currently some of the potential opportunities are:
- Assessing the families for their ESL learning
- Working 1-on-1 with the families in their homes
- Female-focused classes and activities
- Teaching a 2-hour weekly class at Danby
- Developing tools and resources
Please contact Dallas Baker if interested in this volunteer opportunity.
