As a volunteer with Acquaint, your primary role is to engage in one-on-one conversations with individuals worldwide. You'll participate in interactive virtual activities and share your perspectives, experiences, and insights with your conversation partners. By actively listening, learning, and engaging, you'll help create a space where cultural differences are celebrated and mutual understanding is promoted. You'll also be able to apply the intercultural communication skills you gain through our training modules in your conversations and your own communities.
We welcome volunteers from all walks of life aged 15+, and no specific qualifications are required. The only requirements are:
- Conversational English skills.
- A stable internet connection that is strong enough to stream audio.
- A willingness to engage in open-minded conversations with people from diverse backgrounds.
We value tolerance for diverse beliefs and perspectives and encourage volunteers who are eager to learn, share, and collaborate across cultures.
Volunteering with Acquaint is designed to be incredibly flexible and accommodating to your schedule. You set your weekly availability, and we'll pair you with conversation partners based on your preferred times. You can choose how much or how little you want to volunteer, making it easy to balance your commitments while making a meaningful impact. Whether you have a few hours a week or just a few hours a month, your contributions will help bridge cultural divides and foster a global community of understanding and collaboration. Acquaint's open hours for volunteering span 17 hours per day. This wide range of times ensures that you are more likely to find times that work for your schedule no matter what part of the world you live in.
