The objective of this service-learning course is to offer RC advanced students of French an opportunity to engage in experiential learning related to community service work. It provides RC French students with unique service learning opportunities by connecting them with partnered community organizations outside of the University setting which deal with French-speaking immigrant communities. Currently, students volunteer at Freedom House in Detroit, an organization which offers shelter and legal help to asylum seekers, many of whom come from French-speaking West Africa. The academic component of the course focuses on acquiring a knowledge of Francophone West African countries by becoming familiar with their historical, social and cultural contexts, as well as with post-colonial issues. Students are also given the opportunity to collaborate with Freedom House’s legal department by doing supervised translation work. Students receive 2 academic credits, and are required to dedicate 3 hours/week at the site (commute not included), to come prepared to a weekly group session, to complete a midterm and a final project, and to attend one workshop offered by the Ginsberg Center. Please contact Dominique Butler-Borruat (dborruat@umich.edu) for more information.
