Project Description:

The team partners with community and grass roots organizations in Immokalee, Florida around issues of farm workers' rights, fair wages and education.  Students live and work with our partnering organizations and meet representatives from the farm worker community to gain a deeper understanding of the movement for just wages and humane work conditions.  The group works with RCMA, Guadalupe House, Habitat for Humanity and Friendship House in various programs including a soup kitchen, an after-school program, and an early beginnings program.  The team visits the Coalition of Immokalee Workers to learn about advocacy and organizing efforts for the rights of the people who harvest our food. 

The team also has the opportunity to experience some of the natural beauty in the surrounding areas and in the Everglades National Park. 

Estimated Cost:

$800
