An information session will be held on Saturday for "Spanish in Guatemala: Explore and Volunteer," a four-credit course that Jamestown Community College is offering June 30 through July 14.
The session begins at 2 p.m. in Room 224 of the Arts and Sciences Center. For more information, call Theresa Baginski, JCC's associate professor of Spanish, at 338-1159.
Spanish in Guatemala provides participants the opportunity to receive instruction in Spanish and perform career-related volunteer work in Antigua. One-on-one Spanish instruction with a native Guatemalan instructor will be provided. Students will explore the social, historical, and cultural history of Guatemala while living with a Guatemalan family and volunteering for a local organization. Tours of Antigua, the Mayan Market of Chichicastenango, the Mayan ruins in Tikal, and the Pacaya volcano will be conducted.
The cost of the trip, which includes housing, meals, and roundtrip airfare to Guatemala City, travel insurance, and excursions is $2,800.
