Promotores Project

In September 2016, Eastside Pathways brought the Promotores Project to the Eastside to address the need for authentically engaging the local Hispanic community. Eight Hispanic community members—Bellevue residents representing a mix of ages, nationalities, and genders—were selected for training and certification as promotores. Their role was to act as liaisons for information, education, and outreach between families and organizations.

After initial training, the promotores chose to develop and conduct surveys asking community members about needs and issues around housing, education, and healthcare. They also identified current levels of knowledge in areas of high interest and need within the community.
