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 increasingly 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 what has become an almost nightly radio show, gathering oral histories, designing exams for a certificate in interpretation, maintaining a web presence, advertising, and continuing with social events.
