Thanks for asking! Our amazing volunteers who give courses at SPEAK are called Buddies, and being one is a great experience -- you get to make a real difference by sharing your language and culture and you also get to learn from people from all over the world!
As a Buddy, you’ll need to set aside 3 hours a week to prepare and give a weekly 90-minute session, during 12 weeks. It is really important that you are 100% sure you can make this commitment before signing up as you’ll be responsible for a group that is counting on you!
To apply as a Buddy, please follow the instructions on this page.
After your application, we will get in touch with you to participate in one of our online trainings so we can explain in detail how SPEAK works. After the training, you’ll be ready to give a course at SPEAK -- we usually open new courses in January, May and September.
