NALEO Southern Arizona Regional Convening: ¡Hágase Contar! Train-the-Traine

February 13 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

We are excited to announce that NALEO Educational’s Chief Executive Officer, Arturo Vargas, will be in attendance to conduct a training on one of the modules.

Our nation’s future is shaped in part by the accuracy of the data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau on the nation’s population, its racial, ethnic, and national origin groups. These data help ensure fair and representative reapportionment and redistricting. They guide a wide range of decisions made in the public and private sectors that affect the lives of all Americans. Census data play an indispensable role in the monitoring and implementation of civil rights policies and they are used to ensure the effective allocation of billions of dollars in federal, state and local funding. Our work to engage and empower the Latino community is more important than ever.

About our ¡Hágase Contar! Train-the-Trainer Program

As our campaign efforts move into initial self-response and non-response follow-up (NRFU), our train-the-trainers will focus on equipping stakeholders with the tools and information to ensure they can assist their communities with participating in the Census. Our train the trainer curriculum includes both general information on the Census and a few sections of the training will focus in particular on ensuring a full count of Latino communities.

  • Module 1: Census 101 – This training session will cover the importance of the 2020 Census, how the data are used and funding is allocated, overview of hard to count communities, challenges and opportunities of new approaches, changes to the Race and Hispanic Origin questions, and an overview of how and when everyone will be counted.
  • Module 2: Census Operations 2.0 – This training session will cover a comprehensive overview of Census 2020 self-response operations including mail, phone, and online methods. This session will also cover language access resources, alternative operations including Update Leave/Enumerate, Non-Response Follow up operations, counting of special populations and group quarters, and an overview of the U.S. Census Bureau partnership program.
  • Module 3: Census Ambassador – This last and final training session will ensure that all trainees leave the day as a Census Champion. This session will take participants through a comprehensive review of 2020 Census paper and online questionnaires, provide a census operations timeline, an overview of NALEO Educational Fund’s messaging research, GOTC field guidance and best practices, and an overview of available resources to help you pull together your GOTC plans.

Breakfast and lunch will be provided.


Each participant that completes the training will receive a certificate of completion. Participants who complete the three-part module series in its entirety and sign a formal Partnership Agreement with NALEO Educational Fund will also receive copies of the presentations, trainer toolbox of handouts, and a facilitator guide. They will also be provided with all of the tools necessary to then train others in their communities on Census 2020.
