Opportutoring is an organization that is striving to expand the horizons of resettled refugees.

As a tutor, you will be expected to commit 2-3h per week to teach English to a political refugee via Skype. No prior tutoring experience required.

Vietnamese Student Association, UW (UWVSA )

Categories:
  • Charitable, Community Service & International Development
  • Cultural

We are UW VSA, (The University of Waterloo Vietnamese Student Association) one of the many cultural clubs under the Federation of Students. But, UW VSA is more than just a cultural club. It’s a space where students can discover, connect and engage with the Vietnamese community we have here at the University of Waterloo. UW VSA represents a place where students living away from home can experience and share their culture with those around them. For some who feel disconnected with their heritage, it’s a place where they can return to their roots. For others, it could simply be a community for those who want to know more about our unique and lively culture.

UW VSA has been and continues to be an active presence at the University of Waterloo. Throughout the years, our community of members has continued to grow, and while our club has experienced transitions and changes, we’ve always held true to the values and traditions held by each of our predecessors. UW VSA in essence is a community that we like to think of as one big family. We strive to establish strong and close-knit connections between all our members, and build friendships that will last not only during your years here at UW but beyond that as well!
