Our Promotora Program

The CCC sees promotoras as essential community leaders that transcend the organization. For that reason the CCC has developed a program to train local promotoras to develop their careers and partake in community improvement.

 

Our program is designed to develop promotoras  who are leaders that live and experience the problems their communities face. We do not want them to solely react to the consequences of this disinvestment in our community. We seek to address root causes of social injustice and envision them as active change-makers from within the community to make systemic changes. 

 

The program centers on empowering members of the community to develop their leadership to develop the tools needed to become a promotoras. These promotoras are the very people that have been historically marginalized and underrepresented.  They are mothers and fathers, youth and elderly. To become promotoras, they undergo an education program that includes 3 phases of training.

Goals of the Promotora Program 

  •  To educate our promotoras  to be community leaders and build bridges between the community and the services they need, 

 

  • Move towards community democracy with our promotoras as they share their wealth of knowledge and organizing skills with other community members, 

 

  • Create an infrastructure and strong network of promotoras across the Denver-metro area and, eventually, the state to create a more powerful voice for the Latinx community.
