Volunteer Opportunities for Madrid, Spain
The USAC staff helps students find volunteer opportunities in the local community. It's a great way to get involved, practice your Spanish skills, and give back.
T-oingo.com Several students have volunteered for t-oingo.com, a non-profit organization created by American ex-pat Dale Sindell. T-oingo.com provides a forum for Spanish-speaking families who are affected by hearing loss. With more than 10,000 visits per month, the website has become a virtual community of Spanish-speaking families, speech-language pathologists, educators and professionals. Recent volunteers have joined the ranks of an increasing number of students who collaborate with t-oigo each semester and
tutor a child, in English, who suffers from hearing loss.
Local Bilingual School USAC students have also volunteered at a local bilingual primary school. This provides an excellent chance to see how the Spanish educational system works and practice their Spanish.
