Become a Pen Pal to a Project SPELL Learner

Project SPELL is a UCLA Volunteer Center program that matches employee learners with student volunteer tutors to accomplish the learner’s English language learning goals. Pen pals communicate four times per quarter via email, allowing the learner to work on writing and computer literacy skills. Sign up for a quarterly pen pal role, and take advantage of end-of-quarter reunions to meet your pen pal in person! For other upcoming volunteer opportunities, visit the Volunteer Center website.
