AT THE NORTH SIDE LEARNING CENTER, VOLUNTEERS HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH CLASSES IN A VARIETY OF SUBJECTS TO IMMIGRANTS COMING TO THE UNITED STATES.
EVERY YEAR, STUDENTS FROM LOCAL COLLEGES IN THE CENTRAL NEW YORK AREA SUCH AS LEMOYNE COLLEGE AND SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY WILL COME VOLUNTEER AS A PART OF A CIVIL ENGAGEMENT REQUIREMENT FOR THEIR UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES.
ROBERT SHAFFER, A 19-YEAR-OLD CINCINNATI NATIVE STUDYING FILM, TRAVELED THERE LAST SPRING AS A PART OF HIS WRITING CLASS.
“It’s a pretty fulfilling experience to help these kids out as they find their footing in Syracuse being refugees…I created a film workshop where we would practice visual storytelling and digital storytelling as a means of sharing your voice and let your voice be heard.”
