Community Connections

In a video and service project “Health First, Protection for Migrant Workers,” students brought awareness and assistance to migrant farm workers as a result of our community grant awarded to Delia Lancaster, a teacher at St. Joseph Catholic School in Palm Bay, Florida.  Through their work, teachers are now provided with a Common-Core aligned model to have students launch a donation drive to collect supplies to protect migrant workers laboring in hazardous conditions, as well to conduct research and interviews on health and safety issues in order to educate their school and community in two student-produced news broadcasts.

For lesson procedures and Common Core alignment, please click here.

The one-week immigration community outreach project and lesson plan meets three objectives: 1) to educate students on the experiences of the immigrant population; 2) to celebrate and welcome immigrant students; and 3) to empower all students to implement a social justice project.
