Community Service

Participate in a range of activities with local non profit organizations. These will be determined by the needs of the community at the time, but could range from environmental cleanups along the river and park areas in Toledo, to volunteering at a shelter for the homeless population.

You’ll also help Spanish children have better opportunities for the future by improving their English language skills. Spend several mornings at a school summer camp in Toledo. Run activities with your peers to help local children learn English, skill-building efforts that can have a tremendous impact as they age. Activities may include arts and crafts, a small theater, a family tree activity, an environmental-focused project and more!

Immersive Learning

Take your Spanish language learning to the next level with engaging classes taught by local teachers and myriad opportunities for rich cultural exchange. Discover more about Spain’s literary history – including a visit to the windmills made famous in Cervantes’ masterpiece work. Learn from local artisans in skilled trades such as sword-making and the art of flamenco dance; then, try your hand at creating traditional Spanish cuisine in a cooking class.
