Description

Immigrating to a new country can be difficult. While finalizing my Community Resource Audit for LIS601, I found several resources in the Lexington, Kentucky area that benefit healthy immersion of Spanish and English languages for the sake of allowing immigrated people to thrive and give back to society. I also found studies that show a positive educational growth and success from Hispanic students and adults who utilize these resources. Promoting these resources is crucial to expanding our local society and making a change for currently underperforming public schools in Hispanic-impacted areas.
