Swap is a student-run, grassroots initiative that builds bridges of support and solidarity between Swap volunteers, campus employees, and international students in the Boulder community.
Our mission is to bring together systematically divided campus sectors to share a common learning and cultural experience. This is accomplished by providing free and convenient English language classes to CU employees who hold underappreciated yet indispensable positions throughout the campus. Swap also provides conversation partners to CU International English Center (IEC) students, with the goal of helping provide our international friends with the tools to be productive and self-sufficient members of the Boulder community. Swap is a proud program of CU Engage.
Keep in mind that a foreign language background is not necessary to participate as a volunteer with Swap. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions, comments, or are interested in joining Swap. You can also visit us at our office at University Memorial Center 137A.

If you are a CU employee, supervisor, or someone interested in receiving English lessons from Swap, email us your information and we would love to get you started. If you know someone who may be interested in lessons, please feel free to let us know as well.
