Chris: Spanish Community Service Learning Leads Students to Discover New Parts of Town
This is a picture of the office at Ivanhoe Park, which is a community for mobile homes. I have recently worked with several different people who live in this area. I served mainly as a translator between the families and the management at the office. Most of the problems have been about small details in the contracts or insurance policies. There are many Hispanic immigrants that live in this area. I feel that I am becoming more involved in Champaign-Urbana’s Hispanic community by going to places like Ivanhoe and helping the families of the Refugee Center.
