Abstract

Fostering awareness of and behavioral change pertaining to sustainability is an important objective of USU's Extension Sustainability outreach program. The first Extension program of its kind in the nation, USU Extension Sustainability has the potential to set high standards which will be mirrored across the United States (US). While this program effectively targets an English speaking audience, it does not yet have a communication channel for the Spanish speaking community. The objective of this thesis is to partner with a local Latino organization to meet their needs in developing and implementing environmental sustainability curricula using Extension Sustainability camp curricula as a foundation, and to test if this curricula effectively inspires awareness of and behavioral change in the Latino community in their relationship with environmental sustainability.
