AgriLife Extension educators are encouraged to respond to a survey by the USDA-NIFA Vulnerable Populations–Immigrant Youth Champions Work Group. Intended for county- and state-level professionals and paraprofessionals, the survey will help identify Extension strengths and professional development needs related to the participation of immigrant youth and families in the 4-H Youth Development Program.
Survey link open through August 31: https://agrilife.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe1/form/SV_2au3j3obDmZk3UF
Entitled The State of 4-H’s Engagement with Immigrant Youth and Families, the questionnaire will take about 15 minutes to complete. Your information will be kept confidential and will be combined with responses from other Extension youth educators nationwide.
For the survey, the term “immigrants” (or “foreign born”) refers to people residing in the United States who are not U.S. citizens at birth. Second generation immigrants are U.S.-born children of immigrants (with at least one foreign-born parent). If you have questions, please direct them to Dr. Fe Moncloa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Texas Extension members of the national work group include Lupe Landeros, working from San Antonio with the National 4-H Council, and Nathan Tucker from the Prairie View A&M Cooperative Extension Program.
