Meet Virtual Neighbours from great companies

This fall, individuals and employees from participating companies are giving their time as part of the #GiveItUp4Peace campaign, to meet with new immigrants. As "Virtual Neighbours", these volunteers will share insights with newcomers, and connect 1-on-1 on topics like culture, employment, and language practice.

Sign up to meet as many Virtual Neighbours as you'd like! Each match is for a 1 hour video call.
