Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos!

Alianzas is here to welcome Latinx to MU Extension in a special way. We’re strengthening our efforts to reach out to Latinx living in Missouri. Alianzas wants to make information accessible to you in the language you speak, whether English or Spanish. We also want you to know about specific MU Extension outreach to Latinx families, through 4H programs for Latinx children, binational health week efforts, English as a second language classes, and more.
