    Volunteer
    Do you enjoy making a difference with interesting conversation, and helping students over a cup of coffee or chocolate? Sign up for Table Wisdom's innovative online program to mentor a recently admitted international student as he or she attends a university in the U.S. or a young professional. You will video-chat with your mentee and provide them with an opportunity to practice conversational English, learn about American culture and practical living, and share information about their own culture. Some of the mentees in the past have attended U.S. schools like the University of Southern California and Washington University in St. Louis. You (or someone you know) must be a native (or fluent) English language speaker, 50+ years old, know how to video-chat (Skype, Face Time, or a similar program), be available once a week for 55 minutes at a time, and willing to work with the time zone difference of your mentee. After four weeks, you can decide if you would like to continue. If not, then simply let us know and we'll take care of the rest! If you find fulfillment in chatting, learning about different cultures, and sharing your wisdom, then this is the perfect program for you. Please watch this short 1-minute video to give you an idea: http://bit.ly/2pBMKEb Thanks and we look forward to hearing from you!
