The National Compadres Network (NCN) is a not-for-profit organization that was formed in response to local and national requests to address the growing needs of the Latino community, with a primary focus on providing services to Latino males. NCN has a cadre of nationally recognized leaders in many fields that provide consultation and technical assistance locally and nationally, guides and assists in the development of local “circulos” and provides training service providers in a number of culturally competent curriculums addressing a variety of issues to include family violence, gang violence, teen pregnancy prevention, teen fatherhood, Latino Male Youth Rites of Passage, Fatherhood literacy, fatherhood parenting and other areas.
National Compadres Network provides a comprehensive array of services that include community forums, workshops, conferences and one-on-one consultation designed for individual agencies and their staff, volunteers and boards.
The National Compadres Network has two basic functions. One is to maintain an interactive base that connects circulos and communities. The second is to provide technical assistance, consultation and direct services to individuals, community-based organization and or public entities on enhancing male involvement and providing culturally competent services to the Latino segments of our communities.
