German IGeL School

(Institute for German Language)

Julie and Timi 2 The German IGeL school began as a private initiative of parents of bilingual German and English-speaking children who wanted to develop a more formalized education experience in German for their children. Today the IGeL meets in the heart of German activities in Indianapolis, the historic Athenaeum, originally called "Das deutsche Haus". Since its inception, Butler students have been visiting and helping out at the IGeL gaining valuable experience and improving their German while having fun working with kids. Come join at the IGeL! We welcome students enrolled in the German Service Learning class as well as volunteers throughout the year.
