“El Programa Juntos: La trayectoria de un programa de Extensión al servicio de una comunidad en crecimiento” is available on the Extension Foundation bookshelf in a flipping book format. This publication is a Spanish translation of the Juntos eFieldbook produced in 2021.
The Juntos program focuses on educating high school Latinx students and equipping their families with the knowledge, skills, and resources to ensure high school graduation and increase college access and attendance rates. In the publication, the team shares how they are expanding the program beyond North Carolina.
The publication provides information about the history of the Juntos program and helpful case studies. One section explores strategies that the Juntos team used to amplify the voices of immigrant youth. The publication includes a section on digital communications where readers will find ideas about how to effectively use social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, blogs, and email marketing programs such as MailChimp in their Extension work.
The publication’s author is Diana Urieta, MSW, the National Director of Juntos and the program’s co-director.
The project was supported by a grant from the New Technologies in Agricultural Extension (NTAE) program. The team was supported in their work by the Extension Foundation.
Additional titles have recently become available in the Extension Foundation library on topics such as creating mass media campaigns, game-based education, wellness in “tough times,” innovating curriculum, prescribed fire, emergency preparation and response, understanding food labels, and building farm and farm family resilience. You can find the entire library of publications here.
A note about our Publications:
After listening to the feedback of our Cooperative Extension partners, the new Publication bookshelf serves as a replacement for our old eFieldbook library. We greatly value and appreciate the feedback we received, including eliminating a LinkedIn login to access titles on the bookshelf. All titles are publicly available on our Connect Extension platform. Titles that were on our former eFieldbook bookshelf are in the process of being migrated.
