The Spanish Language Internship Program (SLIP) aims to connect Spanish-speaking students with partnered community based organizations to provide unique service learning opportunities with the Latino Community. Through volunteering efforts, students will gain insight into the culture, economic needs and a better understanding of the Spanish language. SLIP offers this unique opportunity for students to engage in experiential learning related to community service work as well as improve and apply their speaking and writing skills. It offers a place for students to realize concrete, personal experiences that link them with the greater community outside of the university setting, thus applying learned information to the “real world”. SLIP also offers an opportunity to understand how knowing a second language can help social workers, researchers, and students build essential links between institutions of higher education and urban communities. Placements are available for all levels of Spanish and transportation is provided.

Course Requirements:

Students are required to dedicate 3 hours, one day per week at their site, attend weekly Spanish discussion sessions, and submit weekly reflection journals. Readings are assigned each week for discussion sessions to highlight Race, Racism, Latino history in the United States, Comparisons of discrimination and inequality, along with current political and community issues. Students will have weekly written assignments, write a Race and Autobiography Research paper, a Final Reflection Paper, and deliver a presentation at the end of term. Please email faculty advisor, Teresa Sanchez-Snell, tssnell@umich.edu, for more information.
