Northshore School District
Bothell High School
Parlamerica is piloting a Spanish–English conversational language exchange program between students studying Spanish at Bothell High School in Bothell, WA and students studying English through a community center run by Familias de la Esperanza. This nonprofit organization is working to break the cycle of poverty for garbage recyclers at the Puerto Vallarta, Mexico municipal dump by teaching English and computers skills to the children, and thereby, giving them the chance to better their lives. The focus for the American students is to learn to use Spanish in practical, everyday settings.
