Getting Them Through the Door and Then Return:

Creative Strategies for Reaching and Engaging Latino Participants

Effective outreach and retention practices are an important element to the success of youth programs.

  3. Understand retention tactics and participant engagement for Latino and immigrant youth;
  4. Understand “real-time monitoring,” and how to effectively apply the practice to improve participant outreach and retention.
