|Are you on track to get 28 hours?|
Sometimes students need extra opportunities to get their 28 hours during the semester. Here are some extra opportunities.
Dear Dr. Abbott,
We are once again in need of volunteers to help with Spanish translating during our parent teacher conferences next month. Last semester your student’s help was a godsend.
I am hoping you can help us out again this semester? Our conferences are Thursday, March 19th from 5:00p to 8:00p and Friday, March 20th from 8:00a to 12:00p. If you know anyone who might be interested in helping, please have them email be at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 217-351-3911.
Thank you in advance for ANY assistance you can send my way!

Books for Prisoners
Sheila Shenoy shared this with me:
This is the organization in Urbana that has volunteers help package books to those in prison. Sometimes these prisoners write in Spanish and I know they would be grateful for those with Spanish-speaking abilities to help out by reading them and responding back in Spanish along with the proper books: www.books2prisoners.org.
Mobile Mexican Consulate Visit
The Mexican Consulate will be in town April 15-17 (Wednesday through Friday). Read the information in the image and find out if you can volunteer at this event, perhaps entertaining children while parents consult with the consulate employees. If you decide to do this event, you must be very responsible and proactive: do not let them down!
Office of Volunteer Programs
Go to the Union and ask (nicely) if they have any opportunities for you to do work in Spanish.
- Write letters to migrant children: http://www.theyarechildren.com/.
- Find a reputable organization that organizes letters to people in detention centers. Keep track of the time you spend writing.
- Do something (or some things) on this list of ways to help people who have been detained.
