Translating/Tutorial Program:  Each Saturday morning students meet to help migrant families and local doctors communicate at the Caridad Health Clinic.  Students also help by baby-sitting children of patients while parents are busy with the doctor.  Often Spanish speaking students help older members of the families learn English.  Although open to everyone, this is an excellent opportunity for students in the Spanish curriculum to practice and perfect Spanish.
