High school Spanish student’s have a great desire to connect language to a real purpose! In this unique high school summer experience discovering that purpose is as rewarding as it is fun. Through trust, family traditions and youth dynamics, students gain the Spanish skills and confidence they need to interact in all aspects of community life. This shared experience with local youth at the community level is an empowering language experience that will forever impact their view of the world and their future in it. Their high school Spanish teachers continually tell us how our returning students are the leaders in the classroom, not just in speaking but also in teaching other students about culture and life in the Americas. Today’s America needs bilingual leaders who excel in new cultures!
