LIVESTRONG Promotores Training Program
To address the needs of Hispanic/Latino cancer survivors, LIVESTRONG created a cancer survivorship training curriculum to increase Hispanic/Latino community health workers’, otherwise known as Promotores’, knowledge and confidence on the physical, emotional and day-to-day concerns of cancer survivors. To date, LIVESTRONG has trained over 500 Promotores across the country.
Through the 2011 Community Impact Project, LIVESTRONG will fund the implementation of our training program in 30 cities across the country. Organizations will receive a $3,000 implementation award from LIVESTRONG to cover costs associated with conducting an in-person training and recruitment and to provide honorariums to Promotores.
Selected organizations must fulfill the following roles and responsibilities:
- Recruit at least 25 Promotores to complete the LIVESTRONG training in its entirety
- Notify LIVESTRONG of training dates
- Distribute copies of LIVESTRONG Spanish resources to participants
- Provide completed evaluation forms and participant information sheets to LIVESTRONG within 30 days of the training
- Using funds from the LIVESTRONG grant, provide each Promotor(a) who completes the training a $50 honorarium
- If a Promotor(a) does not successfully complete the training, it is the partnering agency’s responsibility to recruit additional individuals to fulfill the 25-person requirement
Promotores must fulfill the following roles and responsibilities:
- Complete the 8-hour in-person training
- Distribute LIVESTRONG resources to cancer survivors in their community
