National Volunteer Week 2021

National Volunteer Week


TESL Ontario will be celebrating National Volunteer Week April 18 - 24, 2021 to pay tribute to the many volunteers who are an essential part of the success of this organization and its Affiliate Chapters.

We consider our volunteers to be our most valued community resource.

Sharing their time, expertise, commitment and vision, our volunteers inspire TESL Ontario to continuously find new ways to serve and support our members.

We rely on the innovative contributions of our many dedicated volunteers to facilitate significant progress for English language educators in Ontario.

We sincerely appreciate the dedication, time and skills of our volunteers.  

Please join us in sending a huge THANK YOU to all of the volunteers who make it possible for TESL Ontario to continue serving you.


National Volunteer Week Thank You

Thank a Volunteer

TESL Ontario volunteers make innovative contributions to the organization that benefit each and every member of TESL Ontario. By selflessly sharing their time, expertise, commitment and vision they have facilitated significant progress for language training professionals in Ontario.

Take a few minutes to thank a volunteer for their service. It can be a message to a specific volunteer or team of volunteers, or a general shout out to all volunteers.
