About Spanish for Community:
Spanish for Community (SfC) is an Experiential and Community-Based Learning initiative of the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies (FHIS) at the University of British Columbia (UBC). SfC develops community-engaged learning projects with partner organizations in the Hispanic community, locally and abroad. The projects offer students transformative language and cultural learning opportunities related to social justice, diversity, equity and inclusion, human and earth rights, public health and education, and community art and culture.
Most of the projects are embedded within Spanish courses at UBC, but students and faculty interested can also participate as task volunteers, collaborators, and graduate or faculty fellows.
