Community Education Coordinator Position

The Farmworker Unit of Legal Aid of North Carolina, Inc. provides civil legal assistance, primarily in matters concerning employment law, to low-income migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families throughout North Carolina from its office in Raleigh. We are currently operating remotely due to Covid-19. The Unit has an active outreach and community education program to teach these workers about their legal rights, how they can exercise those rights, and the services the Unit provides. The Unit uses a variety of methods for community education — printed materials, online resources, other media (print and radio), interactive presentations at places where farmworkers gather, evening visits to workers in labor camps, and training of staff and volunteers of other agencies or organizations which interact with these workers. The Community Education Coordinator is responsible for all these efforts, but Unit attorneys and paralegals also participate as needed.
