The Latinx Technology & Community Center aligns its efforts to create a safe and empowering environment providing educational programs to increase the Health and Wellness of Flint & Genesee County.
Our Strategic Approach Towards Bridging Language & Cultural Barriers
LANGUAGE & CULTURAL AMBASSADORS
Our ambassadors help community members connect with resources and services throughout Flint and Genesee County. Ambassadors are housed at our center and conduct strength-based consultations, translations, mobile off-site interpretations, and family outreach.
TRANSLATION & INTERPRETATION SERVICES
Equipped with a bilingual team, the language services provided by the Latinx Technology & Community Center help fund educational programs for English Language Learning families and Youth Development.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSE
Expanding upon our community level language and culture course, we have tailored an immersive experience for social service and health professionals that increases awareness of barriers and builds capacity to serve Spanish speaking residents.
The U.S. Census Bureau projects that by 2050, the Latinx population will make up 25% of the overall US population. We offer an elementary age bilingual literacy and culture education course to prepare the next generation with the language skills to be successful.
LANGUAGE & CULTURAL INSTRUCTION
We envision a community where are neighbors can communicate with one another, where our educators can instruct our young minds, and where our health providers can treat community members.
Message from the Board Chair "Community Stewardship"
"At the Latinx Technology & Community Center we respect human lives by valuing and embracing members from all communities. Our Center is a safe space and refuge for the marginalized and disenfranchised. We advocate for the health and well being of our community members by increasing awareness of local systemic barriers."
