Sant La is a resource in the following areas


Capacity Building

Sant La assists other community-based organizations by providing non-profit leaders and staff with effective training in core management skills - as well as training in survival Creole and cultural competence / sensitivity.
 


Citizenship Assistance

Haitians who qualify to apply for their US citizenship can receive assistance in preparing both their naturalization application as well as preparing for their citizenship interview.  The curriculum and techniques used prepare students for the one-on-one interview process while proving a better understanding of the American government and culture and on becoming engaged US citizens.


Civic Engagement

Sant La provides civic skills training sessions explaining the structure of American government and hosts forums designed to promote community involvement.  We encourage community members to articulate their needs and participate in decisions that affect their daily lives.


College Scholarships

Sant La has created the Dr. Jean-Price Mars scholarship fund to assist college-ready individuals who have achieved academically and need financial assistance to attend college.   This scholarship program, created as a result of the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, targets students who are survivors of the earthquake and are currently enrolled in Miami-Dade County schools. 


Community Partnerships

In order to better assist the members of the Haitian community, Sant La developed a Provider Network, a Community-Based Organization (CBO) Roundtable and a Neighborhood Advisory Group (NAG).  These groups were strategically created to help address the specific needs of the Haitian community.


Community Outreach and Education

Sant La works diligently to inform and educate Haitian residents about important initiatives and topical issues. Due to the Haitian cultural tradition of radio and television, Sant La utilizes both tools to reach the Haitian public.  Sant La's Creole-language educational television talk-show, Teleskopi, has become a primary means of reaching the community. For more information on Teleskopi, please visit the Teleskopi page.
