Latino Youth Environmental Awareness & Action
Through its "Latino Youth Enviromental Awareness & Action" project, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. and the Centro de Apoyo Familiar/Center for Assistance to Families will provide environmental awareness training for youth from five Latino churches located in neighborhoods across Lawrence, Massachusetts. The training will focus on building the capacity of youth to lead and conduct environmental education programs for church members on potential toxic exposures in the home that affect health, particularly children's health. The youth will 1) participate in a series of training programs, 2) conduct an assessment of their own homes using a healthy homes checklist, 3) take actions to reduce exposures in their homes, 4) share educational materials with church members, and 5) present the project at regional meetings and a church youth conference.
