Champaign-Urbana: Use Your Spanish at Urbana High School

Urbana High School (UHS) has had a large increase in the number of Spanish speaking students in the past few years - more Spanish speakers than all the other local high schools combined! Many of these students are struggling and parent contact is critical. However, most of their parents speak little or no English. UHS needs Spanish-speaking college students or other adults to make phone calls in early February to student homes (to help get parents signed up for conferences) and to help during Parent/Teacher Conferences (Thursday, Feb. 18 4-8pm and Friday, Feb. 19 8am-noon).

Interested people should contact: Christine Godoy for details and to volunteer to help.
