El Centro provides you with many opportunities to become a volunteer in the community, all while practicing your Spanish skills.
We are going to work together with 'It Takes a Village Project'. It is a program that uses a collaborative approach to help children in the community who are struggling to read. Children and Elon students who are majoring in Education are paired together for weekly tutoring sessions at May Memorial Library in downtown Burlington.
While the children are meeting with the Education students, we will provide ESL classes and Spanish as a second language classes to the parents. We will also help with interpreting when needed.
This is a great opportunity to practice and improve your Spanish and also get involve and help the community.
For further information about volunteering opportunities in the area, come by El Centro (Carlton 114) or give us a call at 6517.
