Welcome to CAELC’s VISAS Program at UVA

VISAS, (Volunteers with International Students, Staff, and Scholars) was created 22 years ago by the Center for American English Language and Culture. Our free program serves international members of the UVA community, as well as their family members and welcomes English speakers to get involved. Through the VISAS Program, volunteers and international participants practice English together, meet new people, build meaningful relationships, and learn about other cultures. We offer a variety of programs, schedules, and levels of commitment – from 5 times a semester to an hour per week. You can choose a position that works with your needs, interests, and schedule. We invite English learners and English speakers to come join us now!
