Mennonite Country: The Role of Latina Leaders in the Familial, Social, and Educational Outreach of Immigrant Latino Families in North Central Indiana
López, Anayeli; Anguiano, Rubén P. Viramontez
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v105 n3 p22-26 2013
This study explored the role of Latina leaders in serving Latino families in North Central Indiana and how they produced social capital through service and leadership. The larger sample of the ethnographic study consisted of 40 Latino families (63 parents) and 14 school personnel. This study focused specifically on 13 Latina women who were identified as leaders by the community. The findings demonstrated that Latinas' cultural values were at the core of their service, leadership, and capital production. Finally, the value of servant leadership was being passed from older generations to younger generations. Implications for research and practice are provided.
