SCHOOL OF INDIA FOR LANGUAGES AND CULTURE
October 9, 2009

School of India For Languages and Culture (SILC) provides an excellent opportunity to twin cities (minneapolis / st.paul) community interested in learning about Indian languages (hindi, telugu, kannada, malayalam, nepali, tamil, gujarati), culture (festivals, dances, food, arts, tabala, yoga, cricket, cooking). At a personal level, it helped me and my kids to stay connected with our roots; and at the same time, gave me an opportunity to share and to teach Telugu language.

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being a Telugu teacher and volunteer - spending every saturday morning with the rest of volunteers, parents, teachers and students

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

dedicated, professional and hold vast amount of experience and knowledge; And and all of them share a passion to volunteer, help and teach

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help in moving to a permanant school building in Minneapolis / St Paul (Right now, SILC operates in a rented school space on weekends). It could also help in supporting many outreach programs (inviting people from India for guest lectures / performances)
