Looking for our Live Online Webinars? Please consider joining the IC Network at the Family or Friend levels.
Join the Intercambio Network!
Since 2001, Intercambio has connected 5,000 volunteer teachers with 10,000 adult English learners in Boulder County through 1-on-1 and group classes. Connection and belonging are at our core and key to successful outcomes. For the past 12 years, we’ve shared our recipe for success with programs nationwide through informal consulting, training, and curriculum. We aspire to unlock the potential of English language programs to increase accessibility and make the most out of the unique connections we foster. We can achieve this through partnership – where we all learn from one another, celebrate successes, and share challenges. The Intercambio Network is the embodiment of that vision.
