Into the Fields Internship

A life Changing Experience

SAF develops the leadership of college students from diverse backgrounds, giving them the opportunity to work directly with farmworkers in the Southeast.  Each year, SAF trains approximately 20 students on farmworker issues, and places them to work full-time with migrant education programs, legal aid offices, rural health clinics, community-based organizations and farmworker unions. SAF interns increase the capacity of the organizations they work with by outreaching to over 5,000 farmworkers & their families each summer.

“One of the things that I wanted to do in this internship was to see the workers as people with feelings and stories, not just workers.
I think that sometimes we see them as people who are the ones picking vegetables and fruit. We don’t see that these workers are people who have stories and dreams. They have families that are waiting for them back home. They are more than farmworkers working in the fields."
– Yeimi Tomas, 2017 SAF Intern
