Promotores Training Program

 Promotores training program graduates


The Promotores Training Program is a training series developed to train promotores, community health workers and health educators to become a trusted community resource for nutrition information, food assistance programs, and food resources.

Program Description

The program is made up of 12 weekly sessions that are 2 to 3 hours in length. Participants will be trained on various topics regarding nutrition, physical activity, and how to build skills as an educator in the community during the first 11 sessions. During the last session, participants will select a training topic of their choice and lead a group presentation to practice leading a class of their own. Participants are required to be dedicated and present throughout all 12 sessions to receive a Certificate of Completion.

Educating the Community

Upon receiving the Certificate of Completion, Promotores will be qualified to provide nutrition and physical activity education to the community. When educating the community, it is very important for Promotores to ONLY use the information provided to them throughout this training. The Nutrition and Physical Activity Program will also provide technical assistance to promotores if and when needed.
