Afterschool Language and Culture Program

ALCP Classroom Session

With an increasingly globalized world and a high chance of encountering people from different cultures,  familiarity with foreign languages and cultures is vital from a young age.

The Einaudi Center’s Afterschool Language and Culture Program has introduced thousands of children in Upstate New York to world languages and cultures. Volunteers from Cornell and surrounding communities who speak foreign languages provide fun ways for K–12 students to learn about and engage with our increasingly interconnected world.Find out more about the Afterschool Language and Culture Program and other opportunities for educators.

DUE TO COVID limitations and a shortage of staff, we have had to cancel our Afterschool Language and Culture Program offering for the rest of 2020. Please check back in mid-December for an update on plans for the program in 2021. Feel free to email us your questions and interest. Many thanks for your understanding and patience.

Will you share your culture or language? Native and proficient non-native speakers are welcome. We encourage students, faculty, staff, and community members to volunteer! All student teachers receive training and support to build a curriculum and lead successful classroom sessions.
