Individual engagement is a vital component of any healthy, thriving community. At UB, we encourage our students to use their talents to serve a community that has welcomed them for two, four, or possibly several years! It's also a chance to learn new skills and further professional development in their chosen field.
Throughout this new service-learning course, students serve as mentors, tutor middle school students, and support science teachers in classrooms in the Buffalo Public Schools.
Through this service-learning course, students build language teaching experience either in a UB department (Linguistics, a language department, English Language Institute, etc.), in the Buffalo public schools, or at a public service agency (International Institute of Buffalo, Herman Badillo Institute, Literacy Volunteers, etc.). Open to majors and non-majors. For further information, please contact David Fertig, Associate Professor of Linguistics.
Information on service opportunities is available through Student Engagement. Learn more about their volunteer and community service programs including: Saturday of Service, Alternative Spring Break, StayUpUB fundraiser, and more!
