WSU Extension Offering Latino Outreach Training

“But They Don’t Come”

Strategies to Increase Latino Participation

in Extension Programs

— A Full-Day Workshop —

Have you noticed the change of demographics in your region/county? Have you wondered about working with non-traditional audiences? Do you know the trends of the population in Washington and who Extension and other organizations will serve in the future? Are you prepared?

The Latino/Hispanic community has rapidly grown in the state of Washington and extension professionals are increasingly challenged to reach out and work with these audiences. Any model, approach and technique to reaching out to Latinos/as will not be effective without understanding the needs and characteristics of, as well as the cultural and socio-economic factors connected to, the Latino community. The purpose of this training is to provide tools, skills and strategies to Extension educators and other professionals that will assist them in working effectively with Latino/Hispanic communities.
