The San Diego County Promotores Coalition (SDCPC) started as the Promotores Education Committee (PEC) in 2009 and is comprised of employers, researchers, governmental agencies, educators, community based organizations and Community Health Workers (CHWs)/Promotores. To widen the scope of PEC, the SDCPC was formed in 2015 to include all partners working with CHWs/Promotores in San Diego County and create a space for agencies and CHWs/Promotores to come together and share and inform each other’s work. The mission of the SDCPC is to promote, value and recognize the work of CHWs/Promotores and support organizations that work with Promotores to increase access and services to residents of San Diego County. The SDCPC coordinates the annual Adelante Promotores Conference, and other events regarding the CHWs/Promotores. These events provide opportunities for professional development and increase capacity in emerging health issues for CHWs/Promotores as well as opportunities for engaging with other community members and organizations.
Our mission is to advance, value, and recognize the work of CHWs/Promotores and to support organizations that work with CHWs/Promotores to increase access and services to residents of San Diego County.
We strive to achieve our mission by actively participating in community events, organizing training/certificate classes for CHWs/Promotores and facilitating communication between organization and community members.
We are delighted to support and network with Promotores, Community Organizations, Higher Education Institutions, Binational Entities, and more. Our coalition benefits from these connections to continue to increase impact and build long-lasting partnerships.
