Carrying out the College's mission of "Educate for Service," the Spanish program offers its students the opportunity to learn while helping others.
Each semester, SP 325 (Spanish Service Learning) students teach Spanish to local children who are native English speakers, heritage speakers of Spanish, or native speakers of Spanish. Native Spanish-speaking parents volunteer their time to chat with SP 325 students in Spanish and create resources for the program.
Spanish Service Learning students engage in many other service projects that change from semester to semester but have included: teaching English to native Spanish-speaking adults, visiting and chatting with elderly Spanish speakers, translating educational materials for Spanish-speaking families, and tutoring local adults in Spanish for specific purposes (nursing, social work, etc.).
