About

The Asian American Resource Center's (AARC) Senior Program invites community members to help and connect with older LEP (limited English proficiency) adults through volunteering at our "English Corner"!

Volunteers will participate in freeform conversation sessions with LEP Asian American seniors. Senior participants are encouraged to attend sessions with questions in mind, although conversations tend to be flexible and unstructured. (Please note that volunteers will not be teaching English, just helping seniors practice English and socializing with them!)

Conversation session shifts are currently scheduled for every Monday and Thursday; more shifts and session timeslots TBA.

Perks
The AARC provides free meals to seniors on Mondays and Thursdays via Meals on Wheels. Volunteers who would like one are welcome to have a lunch after their session!
