The Yspaniola scholars successfully completed another trimester and are taking classes and studying hard this summer. Scholars Fede, Ramón and Julio have also been working hard to practice their English with Yspaniola’s English teaching volunteer. English classes are offered in the literacy center in Batey Libertad on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and in early June six young adult students graduated from the first level of the course.
Because of the popularity and success of last year’s summer camp, Yspaniola is pleased to support a two-week educational summer camp this July! Young adult volunteers from the community will lead the kids in different activities: art, education, sports, an HIV/AIDS awareness program teaching through play and games, and music and dance. At the end of the month, the children will display their work from the camp through a concurso, or competition and talent show. Yspaniola will provide a small stipend for the community volunteers and breakfast for the children each day of the camp. Stay tuned with an update about the camp in August!
