QUIC English Conversation Program  Student volunteers work in a groups to support international students who wish to improve their English conversation skills. Program volunteers typically contribute 2 hours of their time each week. We meet weekly in the Conversation Group on Thursdays, 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm at the QUIC.

The World Link Program promotes sharing, acceptance and celebration of diverse cultures within the Queen’s community. The program delivers intercultural learning and exchange through social activities at QUIC.

Orientation and training sessions for new volunteers

All new volunteers are required to attend training & orientation sessions specific to the program of interest.  Volunteers are strongly encouraged to participate in the QUIC Intercultural Awareness Certificate training program.  Additional professional development opportunities are periodically offered through our Division of Student Affairs.
