The Avenues community engagement program encourages students to “explore beyond their ‘bubbles,’ whether socio-economic, cultural or linguistic.” In keeping with this goal, ninth and tenth graders interviewed some of our Spanish-speaking neighbors at the Hudson Guild Senior Center as part of a monologue project.
