Students: A New Opportunity to Work in the Community

University of Illinois Extension and the Center of Latin American and Caribbean Studies have teamed up to provide an important service to Latino youth in Champaign-Urbana: Story Time.

I recently received this information from Julia Bravo Bello:

I am working with Alejandra S-Seufferheld, the outreach person in CLACS, in some projects for Hispanic/Latinos families and children in the BT. Washington school. This specific project “Spanish Story Time,” is an after school program for children from first grade to third grade. In this program we interact a bilingual story with music and art and craft. The program will start in the Douglas Branch Library on February 12 at 3:30 and will finish at 5:00 pm for first to third grades children. After 5:00 pm we will be working with children who are in fourth and fifth grade at Shadowood Community Center while another group at the same time “Hope and Community Health Center” will be working with families. We would like to ask you if you have any students from your program that will be interested in participating in this program. This program will occurs once a month starting in February 12th until May 5th.

Ann, If you have any students that could be interested in this project could you please ask them to contact us and we can go from there. Thank you very much.

Students: please contact Dr. Bravo Bello at This is an opportunity to really use your Spanish to interact with youth.

I also love to see how CLACS and Extension are working together with Hope Clinic to provide solutions that address "the whole family." Providing high quality educational child-care while at the same time providing health care is such a smart idea.
