Conversation partners receive 100% of their earnings

Unlike every language-learning program out there, Conversations Unbound does not take a comission from the conversation partners. Conversation partners receive 100% of the money they earn from each session.

We believe in empowering displaced communities.

Conversations unbound was founded in 2015 to provide livelihood support for forcibly displaced people, while also meaningfully engaging students in the global issue of forced displacement.

Conversations Unbound is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

We are proud to work with students, conversation partners, and team members of all different genders, sexual orientations, races, religions, abilities, socioeconomic statuses, geographic locations, and immigration statuses
