Alumni Getting Involved

Could you be an English Language Institute (ELI) Ambassador?

When you were first thinking about coming to the ELI, did you wish you could hear from an ELI student from your country about what it was really like?

Now that you've had the experience of being a student at the ELI, you could be that person. You could be an ELI Ambassador!

ELI Ambassadors are former students who share their ELI experience and give suggestions and advice on living and studying in Vancouver. We post a short profile and a message from you on this website, in the ELI In Your Country section. You can check out the profile of our ELI Ambassador from Colombia to see what this looks like.

If you would like to find out more about becoming an ambassador for the ELI, please contact us and we will be happy to send you more information.

Meet our ELI Ambassadors.

ELI Alumni Events

Help organize or host an ELI alumni event in your country!

When ELI staff travel abroad, we try to organize an alumni event in the city we are in. Since we organize these events from Canada, we usually need help planning the event with someone who is in the city we are going to. If you would like to help, or if you would like to host an event on your own, please contact us.

ELI Blog

Want to be a guest columnist in the ELI blog?

If you would like to say something about your experience at the ELI, or would like to give an update on what you’ve been doing since you left the ELI, submit an article to the ELI Blog. We would love to hear from you. Submit a blog post and we'll share your article on our blog.
