Safe and Healthy Communities Consulting, Owner & DirectorSafe Routes to School offers tremendous opportunities for low income communities of color. Minority and low-income populations are at a higher risk for obesity, diabetes, and traffic-related injuries. Unfortunately, many champions for safe routes lack the knowledge and experience to successfully engage those very communities.

This 60 minute presentation shares the story of WalkSanDiego’s work with the Latino community in Chula Vista, California and introduces several concepts that may be useful to safe routes program managers, workers, volunteers, and civic leaders everywhere.

Learn about:

1. The Promotora’s role
2. WalkSanDiego’s model of Engagement
3. Cultural Competency Training

At the start of the call, Austin Brown of the National Center for Safe Routes to School will provide a brief introduction focusing on the NCSRTS case study project and information on how your projects and programs can submit information for a case study.

This webinar is part of the Safe Routes Coaching Action Network Webinar Series, developed by America Walks and the National Center for Safe Routes to School. More information is available at www.americawalks.fabapps.com and www.saferoutesinfo.org.
