English Conversation Group Facilitator - English Conversation Group Facilitators (Langley)

S.U.C.C.E.S.S. BC Settlement and Integration Services (BCSIS) is looking for 2 volunteers to help with its English conversation groups. BCSIS is a settlement service delivered by S.U.C.C.E.S.S. to support temporary residents and naturalized citizens to settle and integrate into the community.

 

English conversation groups will be held to support temporary foreign workers, refugee claimants and immigrants who have now become Canadian citizens but may still be facing language barriers. By removing language barriers, they integrate better into the work place and understand more about their work rights and responsibilities.  More information about BC Settlement and Integration Services: www.successbcsis.com
