World Language Service Learning Project

The JUNTOS program is a youth program for Hispanic students created to support children and their families by providing individualized tutoring, particularly in math; enrichment activities, community participation opportunities, and adult education. Our program operates by establishing collaborations with other community organizations and programs and with the help of volunteer tutors and mentors.

Students currently participating in the program are not performing at grade level; they can be 1, 2 and sometimes 4 grade levels behind. Individualized, one-on-one attention is essentilal to helping the students gain the skills necessary to be successful in school The students from the Spanich and Culture classes will provide much needed support to work with the students individually focusing on their specific needs. Providing individual attention also has a positive impact on motivating and mentoring students by providing tutors/mentors with opportunities to model good study habits, skills to focus on a task, organizational skills, problem solving, and analytical skills. In return, college students will have an opportunity to contirubute to the comunity and practice Spanish language skills with JUNTOS students, parents, and native Spanish speaking totors. ALso, college students will have the opportunity to interact with people from other cultures and learn interesting facts, customs, and idiosyncrasies that reflect different cultural experiences from the United States and other parts of the world. This is a guaranteed unique experience for college students in Spanish and culture classes.

The usual schedule for this program is Saturdays form 10:00 am to 12:00 noon at the RCTC Heintz Center Campus.
