Salamanca, Spain

Salamanca City Council Partnership

Spanish (High Intermediate)

ISA Service-Learning has partnered with the Salamanca City Council to coordinate placements with over 80 local non-profit community organizations. These organizations work within a variety of sectors including Family and Youth Development, Community Development, and Heath. Examples of organizations include support centers for people with disabilities, senior citizen homes, health clinics, refugee and immigrant support, and summer camps. While we aim to place students in their field of interest, placement with any single organization will depend on the projects available at the time. Students interested in exploring these opportunities should be flexible with their placement options and understand that placement confirmation will likely be 1-2 weeks prior to the program start date.

Cancer Prevention and Support Center

The organization works to provide health education, support, and company to people living with cancer and finance research projects that will allow for better diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Service-Learning participants may help by talking to patients, providing entertainment and emotional support, and collaborating on fundraising and cancer prevention campaigns. *Due to the pandemic, most health-related placements will not be available until 2022.*
