"I won’t ever be able to drink a glass of milk or eat a piece of fruit without stopping to think about where that food came from."
"The mission and vision of CFP were a part of each project I participated in while an intern, and all of my time and work product went directly towards improving the working conditions and lives of farmworkers. The team-oriented aspect of CFP is one of the program’s strongest assets."
"The CFP internship program was the most valuable academic and professional experience I have had as a recent college graduate. I have been able to sharpen my Spanish skills and interviewing skills over the summer months as an intern, and I have also learned how to organize and report the data we collected to make contributions to our greater knowledge of farmworkers and their lives. In addition, the experience has been incredibly rewarding due to its extension and outreach initiatives. I have been touched by the wonderful people I have met in my field research with the CFP."
"Working with farmworkers through my internships with the CFP in 2006 and 2007 inspired me to attend law school to pursue a career in enforcing workers’ rights, particularly for marginalized groups such as farmworkers."
