One important way to enrich one’s overall college experience and to develop and test your language skills and knowledge of Latin American and Latinx Studies is to engage in service.  There are numerous opportunities to perform service that requires knowledge of Latin American cultures, peoples, and languages in the greater Scranton area.

The University’s International Service Program provides faith-based service opportunities abroad, including short-term service trips to several destinations in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Finally, many LALS students engage with local Latinx communities through community-based learning courses, such as SPAN 335 Service and the Hispanic Community. The program also connects students with opportunities to support our Latinx neighbors, like the annual Welcoming Scranton fair, and organizes events, like the South Side Restaurant Tour.
