Spanish Language Internship Program

The Spanish Language Internship Program (SLIP) connects Spanish-speaking students with partnered community-based organizations and schools to provide unique service-learning opportunities with the Latino Community.

This engaged learning course exposes students to a broad study of Latino experiences in the U.S. and focuses on crossing borders, fair labor practices, citizenship, racism, Latino history in the United States, comparisons of discrimination and inequality, along with current political and community issues. Through volunteering efforts, students gain insight and stronger understandings of Latino experiences in the United States.

SLIP offers this unique opportunity for students to engage in experiential learning related to community service work as well as improve and apply their Spanish speaking and writing skills. Students are required to volunteer three hours per week and attend a discussion that takes place on Thursdays 4-5:30 pm.  Remote volunteering experiences are available, see below for details. 

Fall 2023/Winter 2024 Note: This course fulfills the MCSP Civic Engagement Course Requirement. See the MCSP page for details.

Note: This course is offered during the Fall & Winter semesters, fulfills the R&E requirement, and is open to all LSA students.
