Description

AIDD awarded a National Training Initiative grant to the Westchester Institute for Human Development to develop a diversity fellowship program to support recruitment and retention of diverse trainees, and build cultural and linguistic competence within the Center. This project highlights the skills, knowledge and values gained by fellows, including the development of two community-based projects to enhance cultural and linguistic competency within the local network.
