Update: Students Make a Difference at Local Hispanic Center

By Mia Kobylski, Editor-in-Chief

Once a month, the Pre-AP and AP Spanish students volunteer at the Hispanic Center in York.
This is an opportunity for the students to utilize their Spanish skills in the real world by helping community members who may not understand English.
They help people find jobs, create resumes, put fresh paint on the walls and create artwork.
This past visit, they arrived with donations both for the center and victims in Puerto Rico suffering from the recent hurricane.
In addition, Delma Rivera from Central School District spoke to the students about the history of the center her parents co-founded.
Junior Megan Watkins finds the visits to be very fulfilling, as she enjoys helping others.
“They’re always so grateful to have us there, and it really does seem as though we’re genuinely making a difference,” said Watkins. “Volunteering makes me feel as though I’m impacting people. It’s always nice to do things for others, especially those who may be struggling.”
