Spanish Language Internship Program (SLIP)

Description

The Spanish Language Internship Program (SLIP) links Spanish-speaking students with community-based organizations in Washtenaw County such as Corner Health Clinic, ESL classes, Head Start and others to provide unique engaged learning opportunities in the Latino community. Through volunteering activities, students will gain insight into the cultural, political, and socioeconomic issues affecting this group, with opportunities to refine your Spanish. Interested students need to have a three hour block of time, one day per week, available to volunteer on site and a Spanish discussion session takes place on Thursday’s 4 pm- 5:30 pm. Transportation is provided for enrolled students.
