This 60-hour Community-based course can last 4, 6, or 12 weeks, depending on the Spanish session you combine it with, or 15 weeks within the semester (see Academic Calendar). It combines coursework with a volunteering project. Our menu of options includes working in the community, health, science & technology, education, ecology & environment. 

The professional experience will be academically directed and supervised by our faculty. In order to guarantee the success of the experience, students will work with the guidance of both a tutor (faculty) and mentor (in the community service site). They will meet the faculty once a week to discuss both the assignments and the reading materials. This combination will bring students a meaningful insight of the reality of the daily life of porteños culture, while also enabling increased intercultural understanding, and Spanish acquisition. As both course and practice are conducted in Spanish, an intermediate level of Spanish is required.
