International Student Organization (ISO)

There are many new immigrants to Maryland who need our services but donotspeak English. Therefore, we need volunteers who can speak foreignlanguageswho are willing to be trained and then provide these services to theneedyof our community. These services are many including First AidInstruction,CPR Instruction, AIDS Education, etc. Some UMB student organizations maywant to take this up as a humanitarian project for their group. Any interested parties can contact me, Norbert Myslinski.



EBLO has an after school tutoring program at Highlandtown Elementary School. They are in need of tutors for elementary school age Hispanic students.   The program runs five days a week from 2:25-5:25, so you could pick what days you would like to volunteer.
