Join PeaceGeeks and #GiveItUp4Peace this fall by giving up an hour of your time to connect virtually 1-on-1 with a newcomer in British Columbia.
By participating as a Virtual Neighbour, you can forge a connection in just one hour that breaks down barriers and helps a new immigrant feel more at home in Canada.

Contact email@example.com to get your company involved.
Share your insights, build a relationship, and connect 1-on-1 on topics like culture, employment, and language skills. All while raising funds to support PeaceGeeks' projects that ensure newcomers thrive in Canada!
You don’t need to be an expert—just a good neighbour.
Connect with a newcomer for 60 minutes, and have your company match ($1 per minute). Or donate $60 and fund your own connection.
Register to give one hour of your time and chat with a newcomer on video call.
We send you an email introduction to a newcomer. Then you schedule a one-on-one video call.
Don't know what to say? We'll give you a conversation prompt to get started, and you can also check out our resource guide.
For every hour you give, your company matches with a $60 donation. Or fund your own connection through a $60 donation. (All donations go towards PeaceGeeks projects that help newcomers thrive in Canada.)
Don't have capacity for a video call? By making a donation, you will support future connections for newcomers in B.C.
