NC Fields New Project: New Horizons
NC FIELD is proud to announce a new project, New Horizons, that aims to improve the education and health outcomes of farmworker families and their children by providing safe alternatives to field work.
The 3-year project is funded by a $350,000 grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) of Battle Creek, Mich.
The Project consists of three major components:
- Farmworker youth training and employment,
- Early childhood education and childcare placement, and
- Farmworker education and safety training; and financial coaching, parent engagement, and family financial literacy classes with matched savings, and connection to wrap-around resources.
