For two years, service-learning students have been working on a guidebook for Spanish-speakers who are recent arrivals to five North Carolina counties. The project started as a collaboration with GoodWork, a community development organization in Raleigh, NC focused on entrepreneurship and sustainability.
In the fall 2010, students in the First Year Seminar "Spanish & Entrepreneurship" put all the work online.
They used Google maps and asset mapping to create the beautiful website North Carolina Community Asset Guidebooks.
Please spread the word so agencies and organizations that work with Latinos can use the site: http://ncguidebooks.weebly.com/
