English Conversation Program

Are you passionate about helping others practice English? Facilitating sessions for the English Conversation Program (ECP) may be for you! The ECP offers an opportunity for participants to practice their English in a positive and welcoming environment and to meet others in the community. This program is not a structured English class and therefore participants are expected to have basic knowledge of English in order to fully participate.
