DCNP, the DeKalb County Mental Health Board, and Kishwaukee College are collaborating to offer Spanish for Professionals, a 3-part training series focused on developing Spanish-speaking skills in the workplace. This training is for nonprofit organizations in DeKalb County and is offered free of charge to DCNP members through the generous support of First Midwest Bank.
Participants should plan to attend all three sessions, as each training builds upon the previous session.
This is an excellent opportunity for you to develop skills that will help your organization to be more accommodating to Spanish-speaking clients, volunteers, and patrons.
