"Why Don't They Come?" Professional Education on Working with the Latino Community
Garcia-Pabon, Jose L.
Online Submission
This article discusses eight in-depth institutes on Latino cultural competency conducted in Washington State responding to an Extension educator's survey. It also addresses implications for Cooperative Extension, since Extension educators and other service providers need to work with ever diverse audiences. Cultural competency training has increasingly received attention by Extension and many disciplines and efforts exist to help professionals effectively serve Latino/diverse audiences. The survey shows the need of training in Washington, the trainings show the participant's change of knowledge and plans, and the conclusions address the need to evaluate the impact on the audiences served, conduct institutional self-assessment, and support and require diversity training. (Contains 2 tables.)
