Abstract

Using a funds of knowledge framework, this qualitative case study focuses on Latina/o staff in a college outreach program. Findings suggest the success of the outreach program is influenced by staff who have incorporated funds of knowledge into their professional practice. This study reveals that funds of knowledge are not only accumulated or culturally developed bodies of knowledge, but that individuals can also embody funds of knowledge through respeto, family bonds, and commitment. Such research on staff can further our understanding on how institutional values, critical agency networks, and funds of knowledge work to enhance educational opportunities for Latina/o communities.
