Spanish and Entrepreneurship

SPAN 332
332

Learn the fundamentals of social entrepreneurship, a practice that seeks opportunities at the nexus of languages, cultures and communities. We will focus on the question of how to create linguistically- and culturally-appropriate programming within nonprofits. And to make those nonprofits sustainable, we will take from the world of business to find ways they can generate income and build effective systems. You will spend two hours a week in class and two hours a week (on average) volunteering in a local nonprofit, using your Spanish to learn from and serve our local Latino community. Come to class prepared to speak lots of Spanish--and to connect the headlines with the lives of our immigrant community.
Class meets Tuesday and Thursday 11:00 - 11:50.
You will schedule your own volunteer time.
