Course Description > Experience > Summer Field
The fourth component is the Field Experience. This is a work experience at venues such as el MUSEO del barrio and Edelman Company: Multicultural Division among others. Sites are in New York City and Westchester County. The Field Experience is a five-step process that must be completed in order to earn high school credit. If NL and/or LL students are interested, they must write an essay in Spanish stating their interest and why they would want to work at one of the sites. The candidates are interviewed and selected. When the candidates accept the position, they must record a minimum of 200 hours at the site and keep a daily written journal in Spanish. Upon the successful completion of the work experience, participants may receive one half unit of credit.
