10th Grade Service Learning

Page history last edited by Laine Amortegui 8 years, 10 months ago

Outreach to the Immigrant Community in Mecklenburg County

Instructors:  Amortegui & Burton

This year in Service students discover the issues facing immigrants and refugees coming into the United States.  Stereotypes, misconceptions, and other issues that complicate the immigration process are discussed in depth. Students learn about the services available to immigrants/refugees and participate in various activities geared toward facilitating immigrant needs.  A few hours of Service outside of school are required and are part of the final grade.  Students should make their best effort to work with organizations that serve immigrants/refugees, however service hours outside of this arena will still be accepted.
