Launching our ELA Friends Volunteer Program

The English Language Academy not only focuses on helping our students improve their English language skills, but we also seek to help our students cultivate friendships and become a part of both the UWM campus community and the greater Milwaukee community.

This is why we are now launching our ELA Friends Volunteer Program. This program is open to native speakers of English that are interested in working with international students, learning about new cultures, meeting new people, and being an active part of the UWM community.

The goal of this program is to bridge the gap between the domestic student population and the international student population on UWM’s campus. We want to cultivate and grow a more diverse campus.
