This is 6th year of an outreach project at The Boston English Public High school where we teach personal and social responsibility in a before-school physical activity program called “Get Ready” This is a school with 45% Latino population.
In the last two years we have begun to deliver the program in Spanish. We are in need of a UROP student who is fluent in Spanish that would want to work with us in either the summer or fall translating into English certain recordings of the students as well as their written work. Additionally, we have many documents that need to be translated into Spanish. (i.e. informed consent forms, promotional flyers, program concepts)
