Youth involved initially will be newcomers attending Grade 10 in local secondary school (first grouping numbers 6). Content will generally follow an 'ESL' format, depending on the abilities and needs of the students. Emphasis will be on providing an informative, effective, and ideally entertaining program.

The volunteer 'coordinator' would develop a fundamental program content (incl. online 'delivery'), plus plan ongoing content in cooperation of our Program Director. In the early stages, the volunteer will act as moderator of these sessions.

'Rotary Club of Mississauga-Malton' (RCMM) is one of 9 highly active Rotary clubs in the City of Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Proud to be part of Rotary International, a 1.2 million member worldwide humanitarian organization, with 33,000 Rotary clubs around the world. Rotarians are men and women who volunteer their time to make a difference in our communities and the world, through local and international service projects, fundraising efforts to support local charities, youth programs, and global relief efforts.

Our outreach programs locally focus on Youth and Seniors. To adapt our existing programs to a 'virtual' format (in view of COVID-19 restrictions), we seek to enlist capable dedicated volunteers to coordinate these programs and their transition, in collaboration with the Club's Program Director.

The English Language Program for newcomers attending secondary school (Grade 10) is an exciting opportunity for a volunteer to be key in development and implementation of a 'remote' outreach that will effectively impact youth in our local community.
