Latino initiative is focus of training

The Latino Initiative, a three-day training program with Cooperative Extension and the Center for International Understanding, will be offered in Raleigh Sept. 19-21. This program, offered to 60 Extension employees, will provide advanced training in working with the Latino population and a fresh approach to immigrant integration.

North Carolina has the fastest growing Latino population of any state, and most of the state’s newest residents are from Mexico. The Latino Initiative provides Extension employees with resources and information to create practical solutions for successfully incorporating immigrants into their communities. A CRD grant has been secured to pay for lodging and some meals. The training is open to agents, program assistants and associates, as well as Extension specialists.

Information about the training is available through Extension’s Learning Management System on the Web, http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/xlms/. Questions may be directed to Craven Hudson at craven_hudson@ncsu.edu.
