IU13 Community Education is available to support schools and companies as they communicate with students, families, and employees from multiple cultural groups about issues related to COVID-19.

IU13 Community Education is offering free bilingual cultural navigation services for a limited number of hours during June for agencies that have not previously used the services. The cultural navigators, who represent the language groups of Swahili, Arabic, Spanish and Nepali, will communicate with employees, parents, and school-aged children through Zoom, Skype, phone, texting, WhatsApp, and other distance devices. Services include helping children to get connected with their online school materials, providing unemployment information for employees, explaining new COVID-19 procedures to parents and employees, connecting families to community resources and organizations, and sharing information with immigrant leaders in the community.

To request additional information, please contact IU13 Community Education here, or call Beth Boll at 717-947-1652.
