Community Partner Spotlight: Clases de Catequismo
In this picture you see David Martinsek, a student in "Spanish in the Community" who works at St. John's Catholic Chapel with the students enrolled in the Catechism classes. In this lesson, David taught the students the word for Peace in seven different languages.
Having a faith-based community partner brings a unique perspective to our Spanish community service learning (CSL) courses. Many religious organizations have held a primary role in fighting for the rights of immigrants, and for social justice in general.
