The Italian Program at Marist along with the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures, is proud to announce that Caroline Feibert '19 has been accepted to the prestigious program, VoluntarItaly for the 2017 summer session. During this time, Ms. Feibert will spend 3 weeks in the region of Lombardy, Italy teaching English to Italian children and living in an Italian home-stay. Through this program Caroline will partake in a unique cultural exchange in which she is both teacher and student.
Caroline hails from Syosset, NY on the north shore of Nassau County, Long Island. She graduated from Syosset High School in 2015. Ms. Feibert began studying Italian in 6th grade and by the time she entered high school, that initial junior high requirement had turned into a driving passion. Enamored by the language and culture of Italy, Caroline decided to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Italian at Marist. Her enthusiasm for languages is not limited to Italian, as she is also a double major in Spanish.
In Caroline's own words:
“I am very excited to be a part of VoluntarItaly this summer because it will give me the opportunity to speak Italian and be immersed in the language while working with children at the summer camp. As an aspiring Italian teacher, I think that working with Italian children will give me great experience for my future career. As well, I look forward to teaching English to the children and teaching about our culture here in America.”
Sponsored by the Dante Alighieri Society-Michigan Chapter (in cooperation with the Oratories of Lombardy), VoluntarItaly accepts only 50 students with an advanced level of Italian from the entire United States to volunteer at a summer camp in Lombardy, Italy for three weeks. The students are expected to lead regular camp activities while teaching English to Italian children. See more at http://www.dantemichigan.org/voluntaritaly/.
