Jerry Tello, Director of the National Latino Fatherhood and Family Institute
Jerry Tello comes from both Mexican and Texan roots and was raised in south central Los Angeles. He is an internationally recognized expert in the areas of family strengthening, community mobilization, and cross-cultural issues. He has over 25 years of hands-on experience working in communities both locally and nationally. He began working in communities in the early 1970s and has continued to attempt to strengthen, heal, and develop children, families, and communities by building on their own internal assets. Tello incorporates innovative processes—including theater, music, poetry, humor, and storytelling—to engage the heart, mind, and spirit of the audience.
Jerry Tello is presently the Director of the National Latino Fatherhood and Family Institute. The overall goal of the Institute is to address the multifaceted needs of Latino males as related to their positive involvement with their families and communities. In his presentation, Tello will discuss the development of fathers as active and positive partners in nurturing, guiding, and educating their children. Concurrently, he will address how the very painful aspects of child abuse, domestic violence, gang violence, school failure, illiteracy, teen pregnancy, and other related issues can affect the involvement of fathers in the lives of their children and families.
