Description of Agency/Activities: Summit Educational Association is a nonprofit corporation located in the heart of the Hispanic community working with urban Milwaukee families to help their children develop both academically and in character through mentoring, tutoring, and recreational activities. The program is designed to have male service learners work with the boys' program, and female service learners work with the girls' program. Summit provides one-on-one tutoring for first through eighth grade boys and girls during the school year as well as supplemental summer programs. They also offer several art, drama, and improvisational comedy activities, several sports teams and field trips throughout the year. Students are strongly encouraged to incorporate their skills and talents through planning and leading events during the semester. The families Summit works with are predominately Spanish-speaking.
Student Role at Agency: Since most of the staff at Summit do not speak Spanish, Service Learners are needed to communicate with the students' parents on behalf of the Summit staff. Students are also needed to interact with and tutor the students in the programs. Service Learners are asked to make a phone call to students and their families once a week.
