The International Students & Programs Office enhances the academic and intercultural experiences of international students, provides the highest levels of knowledge and expertise in advising and immigration services, and facilitates global education through programs and services to the campus community.
Be a global citizen right here at UCSD and volunteer with the English-in-Action(EIA) Conversation Program to help international students, scholars, post docs with conversational English and help ease the transition into American culture.
By participating in EIA, you will create new friendships, learn about different cultures and develop a broad skill-set to help you prepare for your experiences abroad.
The EIA program looks great on a resume and provides valuable experience for graduate school, professional schools, Peace Corps, opportunities abroad and careers in international relations or education.
No knowledge of foreign languages or teaching experience is required. EIA volunteers attend an orientation session and have access to the materials and resources of the International Students & Programs Office.
Volunteers can work with participants individually or in small groups and typically meet for 1-2 hours/week at a time and location that is convenient for both.
Applications are accepted year-round. For more information, please visit our website: eia.ucsd.edu or contact Shelly Taskin at email@example.com.
