Make A Difference
Join The Effort
Do you share the vision and mission of My Bilingual Child? Then spread the word among your personal network -- including family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, church members -- and consider what action you will take. There's much that can be done as an individual or a group, and as a leader or supporter.
Perhaps you want a language immersion (or other type of language program) started, expanded or improved at your neighborhood school. Or you want to work toward making a language learning opportunity available throughout the school district. Or maybe you want language immersion added as an after school activity, a summer school or camp program.
Let's stay in touch and work together!
What You Can Do
Learn about language immersion programs and schools for children. There are many resources about language immersion programs, schools, etc., online. Also consider going to an immersion school's open house or making an appointment to visit the school another time. Talk with parents whose children are enrolled in immersion programs. Check out the "Local Options" and "Learn More" sections of this website.
Share information, resources and other support related to educating and raising bilingual or multilingual children. If there's an immersion program, school, camp, article, or other resource you find useful or interesting, then pass it on. Consider working with other parents to organize language immersion activities with for your children. Connect with parents via our Facebook page and Yahoo group. Also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
