Student Action with Farmworkers (SAF)
Nov 17, 2023

Librado Mendoza Sosa


Student Action with Farmworkers is seeking applications from organizations in the Carolinas to host college student interns. Students will be trained on issues that farmworkers face and placed to work full-time with migrant education programs, legal aid offices, rural health clinics, community-based organizations, and farmworker unions.

Expectations of sponsor organizations:

  • Meet with intern(s) prior to the internship via phone call or video chat
  • Attend monthly sponsor meetings
  • Coordinate with staff for a site visit
  • Create a workplan with intern(s)
  • Set-up weekly check-in with intern(s)
  • Review project publications
  • Support student projects
  • Maintain a professional relationship with intern(s)
  • Complete exit interview process per intern during the last week of work
  • Complete end of summer surveys
  • Attend the End of Summer Celebration

Students will be required to complete a documentary or theater project. Sponsors are not responsible for executing these projects, but should allow students time to work on them during the internship.


Eligibility requirements:

  • Align with SAF mission and vision
  • Able to contribute towards intern cost (Contact program staff if this is a limitation.)
  • Be able to have a supervisor interact with an intern on a regular basis
  • Organizational work conducted in North Carolina or South Carolina (virtual placement permitted)
  • Be able to provide 8-9 weeks of full time work
Geographic coverage

Benefits of participation:

  • Increase capacity to reach yearly goals
  • New perspectives
  • Potential employee after summer internship concludes
  • Connection with other organizations
  • Full support from SAF
  • SAF does all the recruiting and provides some trainings prior to summer starting.
