GANAS (APA4154.01)

Jonathan Pitcher

In terms of public action, GANAS remains a community-driven, cross-cultural association that provides students with volunteer opportunities to engage with the predominantly undocumented Latino migrant worker population. These opportunities are facilitated by the group itself, in addition to partnerships with organizations such as Head Start, and the Bennington Free Clinic.

Current members are implementing an ESL program, women’s workshops, high-school counseling, and conferences, hosting a biweekly radio show, gathering oral histories, researching workshops on financial literacy and driver’s privilege cards, maintaining a web presence, advertising, and continuing with social events.
