CET provides technical assistance to programs interested in receiving support in reaching out to underserved families and in learning specific information about cultural beliefs and barriers that might affect potential clients’ access to programming.
Technical assistance includes, but is not limited to: designing agency specific workshops on outreach techniques to staff, having an outreach worker assist with special outreach projects or sit on an agency’s advisory board.
Products and Resources
CET develops products to help programs engage with underserved families and help them access services.
The Community Engagement Team organize series of networking/training events to help Cambridge agencies increase their knowledge of immigrant and minority communities, to learn of additional resources for their clients, share successful outreach techniques and practices, and to teach specific information about cultural beliefs and barriers that might affect potential clients’ access to programming.
