The Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Disasters Preparedness Demonstration Project: Implementation and Lessons Learned

11:00 am EDT

This presentation features the Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Disasters Preparedness Demonstration Project, a USDA funded project that examined our ability to develop and provide the necessary training to increase awareness and build capacity in migrant and seasonal Hispanic farmworker high school age youth and adults through Extension education. In collaboration with local CERT and other local stakeholder organizations, a customized Teen CERT and Family Preparedness driven curriculum was developed and a three-day training program was delivered to the population. In addition, disaster preparedness YouTube video educational materials are created using farmworker youth as the main characters. In this webinar, we will share how we implemented the project, what the participants had to say about the training, and the lessons learned from implementing the project.
