Hispanic Young Adolescents: Developing After School Programs and Parent Training. A Resource Manual.
National Coalition of Hispanic Health and Human Services Organizations.
Hispanic youngsters are particularly vulnerable to social pressures and problems such as stress, poverty, and abuse. There is a need for community programs and training materials to meet the needs of this population. This training manual shows how to sponsor training workshops to teach parent educators to work with Hispanic parents and prepare them to better understand and communicate with young adolescents and how to plan after-school programs for Hispanic adolescents. A model project is outlined with discussions of the following components: (1) linking the community with national organizations; (2) reviewing curricula for cultural appropriateness; (3) adapting curricula; (4) revising program plans; (5) preparing the trainers; (6) organizing the training sessions; (7) follow-up activities; and (8) evaluation. Guidelines are given for the replication of the project model and program documents are included in the appendix. (VM)
