In 2017, Hispanic Outreach Program of Goodhue was informally involved with a civic education project lead by another agency. Phase two of this project is where Hispanic Outreach Program of Goodhue formally takes ownership of their own civic project. It involves intensive development of civic education, community engagement, community organizing, network building, advocacy, and leadership skills of Goodhue County Hispanic youth. Youth will use skills to raise awareness of and find solutions to issues affecting the Hispanic community. The youth will advocate for their community to legislators, influencers, civic groups, business, churches, and allies. They will put a powerful human face on and make clear the social and economic impact on the current heightened challenges facing immigrants.
