About: Migrant parents play pivotal role in their children’s education. Mississippi Migrant Parent Advisory Council meetings and other parental involvement activities build parents’ capacity to assist their children with the learning process and enable them to understand Migrant Education Program and assist with adjusting it to their needs. Most Mississippi migrant families’ mother tongue is Spanish, so this is a great opportunity if you want to practice. Knowledge of Spanish is not required, though, as these children attend Mississippi schools and speak English, too.
Task: To assist with educational activities for migrant children (activities at the Natural Science Museum), and during lunch (serving food and drinks).
