Upcoming events by United Way’s Latino initiative
United Way of Greater Toledo’s Latino initiative— Conexión Latina—will be concentrating their efforts in three areas of the Latino community: education, health, and community outreach, and each group is planning or participating in an upcoming outreach event.
The Community Outreach Committee will hold an event on May 20, 2009, at the McMaster Center at Main Library, 325 Michigan Avenue—learn to access resources. A networking reception will immediately follow the training. This event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
The Education Committee is focusing on academic success through parental involvement, English as a Second Language (ESL), and college preparedness. Five volunteers have been trained in teaching ESL. The committee will be helping at the University of Toledo ’s Latino Youth Summit Parent Night, May 11, 2009, at the Sofia Quintero Art and Cultural Center.
The Health Committee is planning a Latino Health Fair August 15, 2009, at La Iglesia Cristo la Roca de Salvación, 2052 Front St., Toledo.
