Any adult (18 years or older) with a high school diploma or GED certificate and transportation can become a volunteer.
What do Conversation Corner volunteers do?
Conversation Corner groups meet once a week and are offered at select branches a few times each year. Each group has one volunteer organizer who is in charge and a few volunteers who lead discussions with small groups of English language learners. Conversation Corner volunteers do not need to speak their students’ native languages.
Our existing Conversation Corner groups do not need additional volunteers at this time. However, we are currently recruiting volunteer organizers and helpers to start new groups at New Tampa Regional Library and Bruton Memorial Library.
