ESL Volunteer Program


“Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation’s compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain love for one another.”
– Erma Bombeck


Welcome to the Volunteer Program at the School of ESL, George Brown College! 

We are dedicated to connecting our students with various volunteer opportunities in the city of Toronto and around the college. Last year our volunteers attended over 200 activities and collected more than 10,000 hours. We are very proud of our volunteers and thankful for their dedication, support, and hard work.

Being a volunteer can provide you with:

  • New friends & contacts.
  • Opportunities to improve your English and communication skills.
  • A Canadian experience and¬†valuable soft skills for professional development.
  • A sense of¬†community.
  • Increased self-confidence, motivation, and a¬†sense of achievement.
