Another Opportunity to Work in the Community

For the past several years, Spanish & Illinois partnered with Mr. Obdulio Fonseca and the Boy Scout troop in Shadowwood. Obdulio is no longer and town, though, so the Boy Scouts weren't an option this semester.

But now they are!

I spoke with Mr. Gino Corrales yesterday about the Boy Scout Troops for Latinos that he has started. He'd be happy to have two community-based learning student work at each site.

  • Wednesdays 6-7:30 pm in the Northwood Trailer Park, Urbana.
  • Saturdays 2-3:30 pm in the Shadowwood Trailer Park, Champaign.
  • Also in Arcola. Ask Mr. Corrales for details. He can also offer rides.
Please contact Mr. Corrales directly if you're interested. Here is his contact information:
  • 217 637 1331
You can use this work to make up extra hours for your required 28 hours over the semester, or you can do it just for the fun of it. (Click on the comments at this post to see what students have to say about doing "extra" CBL work in the community.)

Both guys and girls can work with these Boy Scout troops.

Mr. Corrales cautioned that anyone signing up for this opportunity must enjoy working with young kids, ages 7-11.
