Educational Assessment 2013

IMG_4552Latinos are the fastest growing minority population in the United States. In Oregon, Latinos account for 12% of the population and in 2010, Latinos accounted for 6.4% of the population of Benton County (7.4% for the city of Corvallis). In spite of the federal guarantee of access to K-12 education, Latino students still experience a dropout rate that is substantially higher than white non-Hispanic youth. A recent report by the Oregon Department of Education found that Latinos in Corvallis have a high school graduation rate of 56.9%. Also, Latino students in Benton County have much higher than average rate of harassment related to race/ethnic origin than the county and state averages.

Mujeres de OLU

Last Fall CLUBC offered an exercise and nutrition class for Latinas. That class turned into a year-long offering of Zumba, and also into an organization called Organización de Latinas Unidas (OLU). Leadership Development is the primary aim of OLU, and for 10 months now, 15 mujeres from the community have been meeting weekly to discuss topics of interest and to enjoy a couple of hours of social interaction.  The mujeres de OLU do a lot of volunteer work for CLUBC and last fall they put together the first Latino Festival to be held in Corvallis. 200 people joined us to celebrate Mexican and Latin American Indepence. They are now working on the second Latino Festival.  A lovely article was written about these lovely women last summer in the Oregonian. Check out this link!
