Thank you for applying for a SAF volunteer for the Into the Fields Internship or Fellowship Program.
Student Action with Farmworkers (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 25 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 increases the capacity of the organizations they work with by outreaching to 5,000 farmworkers & their families each summer. Interns work for 10 weeks while fellows work for 5 months improving farmworkers' access to healthcare.
SAF will preference sponsor applicants who meet the following criteria and program expectations (this is a partial list):
