Spreading HOPE to Spanish-speaking communities and organizations
BOSTON, MA, October 30, 2023 — The HOPE National Resource Center announces the first HOPE Train the Facilitator cohort in Spanish. This latest training program responds to the growing need to support children and family in Spanish-speaking communities and organizations. Ariane Porras, HOPE Champion and Program Director for Partner and Community Engagement at the YMCA of San Diego County, will lead the first cohort.
“As we spread the message of HOPE, a shared language is needed to support this cultural shift. Being able to provide support for facilitators of this framework in Spanish will only increase the impact that we can make in our communities in a way that honors their cultural framework,” says Porras.
Over the course of three interactive sessions, Facilitators train to deliver their own version of the Introduction to HOPE workshop tailored specifically to their community and sector. Facilitators are drivers in spreading the core concepts of the HOPE framework and promoting positive childhood experiences with key partners, community members, and staff.
HOPE is now accepting applications for the first Train the Facilitator cohort in Spanish. The cohort will start in January 2024. HOPE is committed to working with speakers of other native languages to spread the HOPE framework in a culturally resonant way.
