STRIVING TOWARDS FIELDS’S VISION
FIELD has served almost 90,000 people since 2002 by making a major investment in an education and training infrastructure as progress towards Cesar’s VISION of social and economic prosperity. FIELD specifically serves in geographical regions that are among the most economically, socially, culturally, and disproportionately impacted communities. These communities are located in 8 counties throughout the northern and southern regions of California, ranging from Butte, Nevada, Monterey, Merced, Tulare, Kern, Los Angeles, to Riverside county.
These efforts have made improved social and economic prosperity in the households of hundreds of thousands of farmworkers, immigrants, Latinx, poor non-Hispanic Whites and African Americans in rural communities a reality.
Our goal at FIELD is to serve 250,000 people by 2025 through our many programs including English Literacy (ESL), Education, Career Technical Education & Training, and our Conservation Corps.
