Access English Centre (AEC)
The Access English Centre (AEC) is an all inclusive program. Conversation Groups facilitated by trained volunteers welcome learners who wish to supplement their language learning and those that have no other opportunities to join an EAL program, such as temporary foreign workers, visitors or those on a working visa. Last year, twenty per cent of clients attending groups were not permanent residents and sixty three per cent were at a beginner level. When the AEC started in 2010, it ran eight groups a week; by the summer of 2012 this number had grown to forty groups. Offered at various language levels and at various times during the week, the AEC meets a growing client need. The AEC volunteer team range from students and full-time workers, who are willing to spare some time, to retired and experienced teachers eager to keep themselves busy doing what they love most. The AEC staff ensure every volunteer has a rewarding experience.
