California Human Development has successfully implemented The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) for over 40 years. The NFJP is a nationally-directed, locally-administered program of services for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their dependents. California Human Development (CHD) provides career basic, individualized, and training services as described in WIOA Section 167(d) and 134 ( c ) 2 and 20 CFR Part 80 to eligible low income, adult and youth migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their dependents. Program services include but are not limited to vocational training, on-the-job training (OJT), work experience, job readiness, job development, job placement, ESL emergency assistance, and referrals. Career Services and Training grant recipients help farmworkers and their dependents acquire necessary skills to either stabilize or advance in their agricultural jobs or obtain employment in new industries. The goal is for agricultural workers and their dependents to full participation in the local workforce to improve the quality of their lives. Our case managers assist farmworkers to obtain employment and greater financial stability across 31 northern California counties. This program creates pathways for individuals to pursue and achieve the American Dream—building successful lives, families, neighborhoods, and communities. CHD has enrolled over 17,000 Farmworkers into the NFJP and has placed over 10,000 into unsubsidized employment.
