Volunteers for After-School Language Program

We are currently looking for Cornell students, staff, or faculty volunteers to teach Southeast Asian and South Asian languages in local afterschool programs.The goal of Afterschool Language Program is to expose K-12 students to a wide array of cultures and languages in an effort to foster cross-cultural understanding and inspire them to study foreign languages. Students learn vocabulary along with cultural traditions through engaging activities such as games, crafts, cooking, and dancing. The Cornell Public Service Center will offer brief training sessions and sample curriculums for volunteers, and SAP can provide culture kits (arts and crafts activities, textiles, books and printed materials, musical items, etc.) to assist your teaching.
