Every month from September to June, CJ organizes a workshop (free and open to the public) to provide useful information to service providers and interested community members about the area’s Latino community, the issues they confront, and programs, events, policies, laws, and resources that can affect and benefit this population. Workshops are typically 90 minutes long, take the form of a panel, forum, or roundtable, and include a question/answer or discussion period, community announcements, and resource tables with English and Spanish language materials for service providers and community members working with Latinos. The workshops also give service providers an opportunity to learn about and network with one another and share resources.
CJ Workshops are conducted in English and are open to the public. They typically take place the second Thursday of each month from September to June (no workshops in July or August). Registration and refreshments begin at 9:40 a.m.; the workshop is from 10:00 am – 11:30 am in Room A of the Albemarle County Office Building on 5th St Ext. For more detailed directions, visit:
