Universidad VeritasMay 2017 + Service-Learning (May 7, 2017 to Jul 29, 2017)
Catalog Code: ISJEM0517
This 12-week program is for students who would like to improve their proficiency in the Spanish language in a short period of time by completing a 4-week intensive Spanish language month before beginning an 8-week service-learning placement.

Placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours and program activities. Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the ELAP website for more information.
