Impact Statement
Volunteers make a significant contribution to our organization. They form the heart and soul of the YMCA. As a charitable organization our volunteers are ambassadors, providing us with a unique way to reach our members and participants. Volunteering is more than just sharing your time and passion. It's about giving back to the community where you work and live.

The volunteer is responsible for facilitating a Summer Conversation Circle group (between 8 – 10 adult participants). Volunteers will be responsible for brainstorming and planning different topics to allow newcomers to practice their spoken English. These topics should address practical needs of participants, facilitate conversation, and provide opportunities for social connection. Our goal is to support newcomer adults in feeling welcome to the community, confident in their English language skills, and connected to others.
