Superación Personal

Superación Personal is a set of weekly groups that are a safe, open space for Latinas to receive support from other Latinas through education, classes and discussions. This is done through discussions and advice on meditation, coping mechanisms and self-growth activities. Superación Personal is also a place to socialize as many of the women in these groups have no family nearby or are recently separated. The groups are facilitated by Latino Leadership Council Promotora, Maria Cordova.

The group meets every:

Tuesday from 9:30-11:00am at Kids First

124 Main Street, Roseville, CA 95678

Wednesday from 10:00-11:30am at Granite Wellness

1530 3rd Street #106, Lincoln, CA 95648

Rincón de las Comadres

 

Rincón de las Comadres is program that brings Latinas together to share and learn from each other's skills, crafts and knowledge that will help them excel in their personal and professional lives—even learning how to start their own small business. The group also focuses on preserving their rich culture and passing it down to the next generation. The program builds relationships that help address issues of cultural isolation and empowers participants with the skills and knowledge needed to take control of their personal situations and avoid the stresses and pressures that can lead to mental and physical health problems.

The Comadres get together every:

 

Monday from 5-7pm at Auburn Kids First

119060 Heritage Oaks Place #3, Auburn, CA 95602

Wednesday from 5-7pm at First Street Elementary

1400 1st St, Lincoln, CA 95648 (Room 13)

Friday from 9-11am at Eich Middle School

1509 Sierra Gardens Drive, Roseville, CA 95661

Parent Project

The Latino Leadership Council offers parenting classes to help Spanish-speaking parents build and retain the skills necessary to raise their children in a bicultural environment. One such class is The Parent Project which is a 16-week course that teaches parents about gangs, alcohol and other behavioral challenges relating to teens. In order to ensure parent participation, we offer free childcare for children 0-6 years, junior groups of 7-12 years and teens 13+ so that children are building relationship skills alongside their parents.

We currently offer the classes annually in Roseville, Lincoln and Natomas.

Mami y Yo

Our Mami y Yo group was created in partnership with First 5 to build a safe space for Latina mothers of children 0-5 to build their knowledge about healthy childhood development as well as make connections with other moms in order to foster a community support system. The Latino Leadership Council provides diapers, wipes, toys and a nurse weekly to measure the children's development. The group is active year-round.

Health Education

The Latino Leadership Council has an ongoing collaboration with Chapa-De Indian Health and the Auburn Renewal Center (ARC), to identify and educate diabetic Latinos in Placer County, on daily self-management; making healthy food choices, staying physically active, monitoring blood sugar and taking medications as prescribed.  The intent is to:

 

  • Provide culturally competent diabetes education classes for undocumented Latino immigrants in Placer County

  • With the assistance of Chapa-De’s Eligibility Specialist, get the undocumented Latinos registered for appropriate benefits such as Medi-Cal, MediCare, etc.

Health Screenings

The Latino Leadership Council organizes health screening services for Latinos. The health screenings provide services in Spanish to hundreds of uninsured adults. Our Promotores are available at these health fairs to connect the community to primary care providers and clinics that we have vetted in regard to the level of medical care provided and whether or not they have Spanish-speaking staff.

 

The Latino Leadership Council also offers seasonal flu shot clinics for the Latino populations, typically vaccinating more than 350 adults at every year.

We are always looking for registered nurses to help volunteer at our health and flu clinics. If interested, please call Elisa Herrera at (530) 333-3283.
