Volunteer to Facilitate a *Virtual* ELI Conversation Circle for Summer 2020

The English Language Institute’s long-running Conversation Circles program is going virtual this summer in order to create connections among international students and scholars at U-M, beat the isolation, and boost morale during this difficult time. Each circle consists of up to six participants and is led by a volunteer facilitator. Participants meet via an online platform to talk about any topic of interest, play games, and share pictures and videos. 

No previous experience is necessary. All facilitators will receive an orientation to the program and training on how to facilitate conversation circles virtually.

To be a facilitator, you should:

  • Be a current U-M student, faculty, or staff member
  • Be a fluent speaker of English who is very knowledgeable about U.S. culture
  • Commit to volunteering 1 hour per week for six weeks
  • Attend a one-hour orientation session if you are a first-time facilitator

This is an opportunity to support our community and be part of the U-M family while apart. You can provide a valuable space for U-M international students and scholars to stay connected during this time of loneliness and uncertainty.

Facilitating a virtual conversation circle gives you a chance to meet new people from around the world at the time of sparse in-person communication, learn about other cultures, and share their own interests and experiences. 

Summer 2020 Conversation Circles run for six weeks:

June 29th – August 9th

Facilitator registration is open:

June 8th – June 18th

Click HERE for more information, and to sign up to facilitate.

If you know any international students (or are an international student!) who would like to join a Conversation Circle as a participant, you can learn more HERE.
