Description:

Since 1971 the Association of Farmworker Opportunity Programs (AFOP) has focused on improving "the quality of life for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families by providing advocacy for the member organizations that serve them." Upon visiting the website, visitors will see that 2011 is the Year of the Farmworker Child, and the AFOP website has a section called "Children in the Fields" that offers facts, reports, and multimedia. The "Job Training" link offers visitors some great success stories and some impressive return on investment (ROI) figures for the National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP), which is a government program authorized under the Workforce Investment Act. Visitors should check out the total ROI for every dollar of taxpayer money invested in the NFJP.
