The Advanced Spanish Service Learning course is based on the strong tradition of community building in the
Spanish speaking world. The community spirit of Spain and Latin America is brought to life in our midst
through the magic and poetry of its people. We find this spirit in our local Latino community, we are
enriched by its powerful array and diversity, and we are called to action to support it. Span 3040 students
engage with various community partners, develop long-lasting relationships, and share their commitment,
discoveries and enterprises in creative ways. Operación Impacto is an example, and the invitation to other
Spanish students, encouraged as well to experience the impact of service. The GW Chávez~Huerta~Itliong initiative to
honor the legacy of social justice leaders like César Chávez, Dolores Huerta and Larry Itliong is our long lasting commitment and invitation to the GW community and beyond!
