The Learning Exchange offers year-round free programs and drop-in activities. It’s hands-on learning and leading for community members.
English Conversation Program (ECP)
These small group sessions focus on language, Canadian culture and the local community. The ECP also includes peer facilitator training for volunteers who wish to lead conversation sessions, either on their own or with a UBC student. There are also informal conversation activities specially created for seniors (55 years of age or older).
Workshops are offered in basic and advanced sessions that can range from Microsoft Word to PowerPoint. Local volunteers and UBC students are trained to lead workshops at the Learning Exchange and at various community partner locations.
These are informal individual or group sessions that range from computer access and support to arts, crafts and games. Activities change regularly, depending on the interests of participants and leaders who may be local residents, UBC students or Learning Exchange staff.
