The Promotores Program trains lay health workers to deliver nutrition education to the community. The goal of the program is for the promotora/es to connect community members to resources and become a trusted source of nutrition information in the community.
The Promotores Program is 12 sessions and each session is 1.5 – 2 hours. Participants must attend all 12 sessions in order to receive a graduation certificate. Missing more than one session will disqualify participants from the program. Participants will receive nutrition education during the first 11 sessions and will present to their classmates during the last session. Promotores will present in teams of 2-3 assigned by their instructor.
Educating the Community
Upon receiving the graduation certificate, Promotores will be qualified to provide nutrition education to the community. When educating the community, the promotora/es must only use the content provided to them throughout the training. The Nutrition program will provide technical assistance to promotora/es as needed.
