Based on recent census data, the Latinx population continues to grow. Is your volunteer force representative of your Latinx community? Do you notice a gap in representation? Are you looking for ways to engage and retain Latinx volunteers as part of your organization’s volunteer program? Is your organization equipped for the inclusion of more Latinx volunteers?
