How do I join- contact program student coordinator Martha Pratt via FC expressing your interest in the program.
Is there an application to participate- the program coordinator will meet with you to go over details, make sure the program meets your needs and expectations, and you will attend an orientation. There is not a written application.
How do I get placed with a local teacher- the program coordinator takes your interests and schedule and matches that with interested teachers.
What is the time commitment- most STICS volunteers do between 1- 3 hours a week, but it is dependent on your availability and the needs of the local teachers. While most volunteers do it for the year, you can do it just for a semester. You can keep your teacher or switch to a new classroom.
Can I receive course credit- many students do. You need to speak with your instructor in the beginning of the semester.
How do I get there- if a volunteer does not have their own vehicle, MCLA can provide transportation
