Beginners Italian Instructor Volunteer
The West End Seniors' Network (WESN) is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of older adults by providing social, recreational, educational and supportive programs and services that foster connection and inclusion in the broader community.
We are looking for an individual who is fluent in Italian to teach a Beginners Italian Class. If you are a reliable and personable volunteer who is able to lead a class independently, we are looking for you! The intention is to have structured classes to teach basic conversational and spoken Italian. There could be opportunities to teach reading/grammar as well. The curriculum is flexible and up to the volunteer instructor. No materials are provided by WESN, though you can use the copier for worksheets etc.
You must currently live in Vancouver.
- Lead a beginners Italian class.
- Available to lead class once every week for 1-1.5 hours on a weekday during business hours.
- Help people with their Italian questions and queries.
- Prep the program space (move chairs, tables, create copies of materials if needed, make members feel welcome, etc).
* A friendly, social and patient personality.
* Fluent in Italian.
* Comfortable facilitating and ensuring good group dynamics
Experience working with seniors would be an asset, but is not necessary.
