Why volunteer with CXI? 

Volunteer teachers have the opportunity to join students on various trips and outings.

Connexions International exists to compassionately serve the international student community in the Twin Cities with English classes and language help, and through cultural activities. We offer opportunities for interested students to explore Christian faith through Bible studies, conversations, and church activities.

We depend on Christians who are motivated by their commitment to Christ and interest in international friendship and service.

We depend on churches who share our passion for international ministry and outreach.

We depend on God to provide committed helpers and finances.

We depend on one another to encourage and pray for us and our students.

In what ways can I volunteer with CXI? 

There are many ways to be involved at Connexions International, even if teaching isn't your thing.

You could...

  • Become a Conversation Partner

  • Teach an English Class

  • Be a tour guide around the city to explore Minnesota
