One of the first obstacles new arrivals must overcome is the ability to converse in English, a skill many do not yet have. When you step into the role of a Conversation Partner, you will be empowering refugees to begin life in a new culture. In the process, you will be inviting people into new life in America and possibly into Gospel centered conversations.
English classes are currently conducted online. Initially, conversation partners will interact with students via FaceTime and Zoom. Once you have signed up to volunteer, and after completing a background check, we will work with Refugee Services of Texas to match you with a student. There is flexibility during the week for scheduling your conversation time.
