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.

The goal of the program this semester is to give students interested in K-12 foreign language and culture engagement a glimpse at the practice of teaching. Each month, the workshops will be held in collaboration with a Cornell faculty and staff members. At the conclusion, each student participant should come away from the program ready to volunteer in the local area this fall. Participating students will receive a certificate of completion.
