Walk One Hour in My Shoes/Camina Una Hora en Mis Zapatos
The Latino/Hispanic population continues to increase, yet many professionals struggle to effectively service this growing population. UW Extension’s Walk One Hour in My Shoes/Camina Una Hora en Mis Zapatos workshop instructs participants how to be culturally competent. The curriculum focuses on building and understanding the diverse Latino/Hispanic population, including new immigrants, families who have been in the United States for generations and others in between. Participants will gain a better understanding of Latino culture and learn tools to assist them in working with this population. For more information or to schedule a workshop, please contact Stormy Cooley at 608-263-1096 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. This four hour workshop requires a $25 commitment fee due upon confirmation.
