English Open Doors Program

VS4 (August 7th-November 26th) Merges with VS3 (July 24th-November 26th)

Unfortunately, due to budgetary constraints, the Ministry of Education has reduced funding for the English Opens Doors Program initiatives to be implemented in the 2017 school year. This means that we are no longer able to offer two separate one-semester long services in July and August. As a result, VS4 (August 7th-November 26th) will be merged with VS3 (July 24th-November 26th). To be clear, this means that we will no longer be offering the VS4 service that began on August 7th. Instead, we are only offering one service, VS3, which begins on July 24th and ends on November 26th.

Applications for VS3 will be open until March 26th, as planned. Positions for this service are limited and our volunteers are accepted on a rolling basis, so to ensure your spot, be sure to apply as soon as possible! Any questions regarding this merge in services or applications in general can be directed to
