Membership

We cordially invite you to join the East And West Learning Club as a member!
We are a non-profit cultural group based in Toronto that bring learning opportunities for the public to learn both eastern and western cultures, and to facilitate in-depth dialogues among people of different heritages. Please visit our home page to check out our vision, mission and event details.

In addition, we provide special programs and extra benefits to our members.

1. Members have full access to all club activities and announcements. For some costly workshops, members will get discounted rates.
2. Throughout the year, we will organize fun events from time to time for members only, such as online group chats, public speech practices, cultural field trips, nature walks, campings, and so on – you are more than welcome to contribute ideas to add to the list!
3. Members will have an opportunity to participate in a training provided by a professional communication skill coach that is open to club members only.
4. We engage members with both conventional and innovative volunteering opportunities to help people in need, and make a difference to a variety of communities.
5. Once you become a member, your families, including parents, partner and children will be automatically entitled to all membership benefits.

There are three ways you can become a member of our club on an annual basis:

1. All volunteer guest speakers and lecturers whom we have invited are entitled to a 3-year membership. We will contact you for your confirmation on interest and updated membership information.

2. Be a club volunteer, and agree to contribute 10 hours or more per year to help the Club or people in need through our volunteering programs.

3. Pay a $50 membership fee annually. Or help secure a donation of $50 or more.

All members must agree to follow these rules of thumb:

1. Treat all other members with respect and friendliness, regardless of their cultural backgrounds or socio-economic status.
2. Follow the purpose of the Club, and keep it as a non-political, non-religious, but purely cultural and not-for-profit organization

Please contact info@eawlc.org to ask for the membership application form, and indicate how you would like to be a member – if as a volunteer, please indicate in which area(s) you would like to help out, and your availability. Check Volunteering Service Hub for details.

If you are as curious as us about both eastern and western civilizations, and wish to make friends with like-minded people, just join us. Professionals or home-makers, adults or young students, everybody is welcome!
