Strategies to Increase Latino/a Participation in Outreach Programs

The Latino community is the largest minority group in the Northwest and will continue growing rapidly in Washington and other states in our region. Agencies and institutions are increasingly challenged to reach out and work with Latino audiences.

Dr. José L. García-Pabón, Assistant Professor and Latino Community Development Specialist at Washington State University (my alma mater!) will conduct a highly interactive workshop that provides participants with various tools, skills and strategies to recruit and retain Latinos in their programs. Presentations, panel discussions, hands-on exercises, and other activities will keep you actively engaged and learning in a respectful and casual environment.

This workshop is offered in conjunction with the "15th Annual Northwest Parenting and Family Education Conference" March 25-27 in Lynnwood, WA. Only 15 seats are available for non-conference participants.

WHEN: March 25, 2009, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

WHERE: Edmonds Community College, 20000 68th Avenue West, Lynnwood, WA 98036

COST: $75
