D2 Center Students Participate in UNO Service Learning Project: Business Spanish

This past summer, the D2 Center kicked off a partnership with our colleagues at the UNO Service Learning Academy P-16 Initiative, a program that brings together area P-12 students with UNO curriculum through service learning experiences that “connect learning outcomes with community identified needs while meeting curriculum and course standards.” The UNO P-16 Initiative works in partnership with Building Bright Futures, the parent organization of the D2 Center.

Three D2 Center students participated in our first UNO Service Learning project in July and August by attending a class in Business Spanish taught by Professor Arturo Miranda. The entire class was taught in Spanish. The students had an opportunity to get feedback on writing a resume and participate in a group project on Latin American countries with the UNO students. This was also a great opportunity for the students to experience a college campus from a college student perspective and to learn what it’s really like to take a college course.

Special thanks to our friends at the UNO Service Learning Academy P-16 Initiative and to Professor Miranda. We’re looking forward to more projects with the UNO Service Learning Academy in the future!
