Now Available: Valuable Insight on Programs for the Latino Community
This past week the National Research Center on Hispanic Children and Families published a new guide that provides an excellent overview of several Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education programs and Responsible Fatherhood programs developed specifically for the Latino community. If you work with Latino teens and/or young adults I encourage you to download and read the guide because it will allow you an opportunity to compare various aspects of these programs at-a-glance and may help you determine which program(s) might best satisfy your organization’s and community’s needs.
In addition to offering comparisons, the guide also identifies key areas where Latino-specific Healthy Marriage and Relationship Education and Responsible Fatherhood programs can be strengthened in order to keep these resources effective. As the quality of Latino-specific programs that emphasize male involvement, healthy relationships, and comprehensive sex education continue to evolve, organizations that serve Latino teens and young adults will be better positioned to continue their efforts to decrease Latina teen and unplanned pregnancy rates.
So, take a moment to review the guide and consider the strengths and weaknesses of the program(s) you are interested in.
