İBienvenidos al Peace Learning Center!

2021-05-20T17:41:24-04:00April 23rd, 2020|

İBienvenidos al Peace Learning Center! Working as a Spanish Specialist at PLC means a lot of things. Put simply, we are the bilingual facilitators. We translate youth and adult resources from English into Spanish, we facilitate youth and adult programs in Spanish, we adapt bilingual programs to meet the needs of multilingual groups—the list goes on. Most importantly, we use our language skills to bring PLC’s mission to fruition for Spanish-speaking community members. PLC’s mission is to support communities in redefining peace through equity, justice and the implementation of innovative practices. Speaking in Spanish allows us to appropriately serve Spanish-speaking communities domestically and internationally. We serve adult groups, official Spanish immersion schools, as well as schools that have any number of Spanish speaking students. At the beginning of the 2019-2020 school year, we were able to provide schools with bilingual (Spanish/English) resources for the first time. This means that now we serve youth and adults more effectively by offering bilingual calm kits, bilingual SEL (social-emotional learning) lessons, bilingual restorative circles, and bilingual peace literature. Sometimes we enter English-speaking classrooms and there are a few students who only speak Spanish. We help students understand the purpose of our programs by talking to them in Spanish. They tend to break past that “wall” of being timid or afraid to talk to facilitators because they don’t know we know Spanish until we make it known. This kind of relationship-building is powerful.
