Advance the mission of Florida's land-grant universities by ensuring equity, inclusion, and full participation of Latino/Hispanic youth, families and communities in the benefits and leadership of Cooperative Extension.

To promote a sustainable service organization, CAFE Latino created a decision-making executive committee responsible for providing strategic direction. CAFE Latino also developed “Program Area Teams,” with associated program leads to streamline the process for addressing service requests, and also to promote the proactive development of materials and products that are needed in each program area across the state.
