Promotoras

The Promotora Program builds on the natural leadership of community members, cultivates a critical consciousness and engages neighborhood residents in promoting health and educational equity. Community members share their stories, dialogue, and participate in professional development strengthening their capacity to change conditions that impede the health and education of families. Annually, 15-20 promotoras civically engage in creating environments that facilitate wellness. They participate in hundreds of hours of community service as they work with community partners.
