New 4-H Web Pages in Spanish - A Hub of Information for our Spanish-Speaking Families
Submitted by Aliah Mestrovich Seay
With the launch of the new 4-H website, comes new pages uniquely developed for our Spanish-speaking families. All the essential information to get them started in 4-H can be found there. We hope that these pages will make your job easier by having a "one-stop" shop for your families’ 4-H needs.
There will be four main sections under the (Información en Español – Information in Spanish) tab:
· Como inscribirse – How to enroll
· Recursos - Resources
· Clubs de Interés Especial - SPIN Clubs
· Página de contacto – Contact Page
Your Latino(a) families will be able to follow a 4-H Online Spanish video tutorial for enrollment and re-enrollment. Written instructions and consent forms accompany the 4-H Online Tutorial in case the families would like to download them and print them out for future reference. Essential documents like the 4-H Participation Form, Enrollment Form and Project Selection Guide will also be available.
Your families can learn about SPIN Clubs and have access to The New Family’s Guide to 4-H so they can better understand the 4-H experience. In addition, they will be able to browse different subject areas like Gardening, Health, and Agriculture…etc…at their leisure on the Resources (Recursos) page.
If they have additional questions, the Contact Page will provide them with Rosa Gonzalez’s direct number since she is the Reaching New Audiences 4-H Program Coordinator in the SW Extension Office. She can answer any initial questions they may have.
I am open to any suggestions you have to make the pages better. Please let me know if you have any questions or feedback.
