Volunteers - Intercultural Book Groups

Do you appreciate, and want to learn more about, other cultures?

Are you proficient in speaking and reading English?

Then contact us about volunteering for ESOL (English as Second Language) or migrant book groups!
Groups meet for an hour or so (monthly or, in some cases, more frequently). Chat involves the Intermediate level book and aspects of Kiwi life. (No membership cost involved.)
