This chapter provides training for the leaders of the Taking Charge group curriculum and is meant to enhance the practice manual in Chapter 3 and the training on effective group leadership in Chapter 4. The chapter covers essential knowledge and useful practice skills for making the Taking Charge groups culturally relevant for diverse participants. In particular, it covers the cultural significance of language and dialect, rituals and activities, icons and metaphors, values, roles, and foods that represent home. Practice examples illustrate the importance of each of these elements, and how they make the groups culturally competent and effective with adolescent mothers from diverse cultural backgrounds.
