Expanding the Reach: Connecting with Latino Communities
South Carolina Association for Community Economic Development invites county staff and officials to participate in their training program, Expanding the Reach: Connecting with Latino Communities.
Latinos represent one of the many diverse communities in South Carolina. Even though they bring a wealth of knowledge and culture, they continuously miss opportunities to participate in economic development opportunities. According to PEW Research Center, 5 percent of South Carolina’s population is Latino, with a median annual income of $20,000; 41 percent of Latinos under the age of 17 live in poverty. Attend this training to learn how community-based organizations can better meet the needs of Latino families in a linguistically and culturally appropriate way. PASOs, a statewide organization, helps the Latino community and service providers work together for strong and healthy families.
