Join the Capital Region Young Professionals Network and Sunhee’s Community Place in welcoming immigrants and refugees to the Capital Region! This volunteer opportunity will consist of a “speed-dating” style session of English language practice. Volunteers and students will be given instructions and prompts to practice their English conversation skills and get to know each other.
This will be a hybrid volunteer opportunity. After signing up, please email Brandi Landy at BLandy@capitalregionchamber.com to indicate if you prefer to volunteer in person or on Zoom.
