The Corre la Voz teaching-learning lab at UCSC has been going for more than 13 years now and offers great, ongoing experience and opportunities to build relationships with teammates and incredible kids--currently at the middle school age.  Corre la Voz develops mentoring teams and community power with dual-language latinx youth in the middle grades on multi-modal literacy projects.  The program works with Senderos, a community-based immigrant organization; and the current site is  Bay View Elementary. The program especially needs fluent speakers of Spanish and folks who want to work with elementary schoolers and newcomers!
