The Campaign for Migrant Worker Justice is excited to welcome applicants for its upcoming Youth Employment Readiness and Empowerment Program – The FLOC Homies Union. The Homies program blends classroom teaching, subsidized ($10 hourly) field internships, and community organizing. The Homies are a member of Toledo’s Black/Brown Unity Coalition, fighting for improved relationships with the police, educating community members about lead paint, leading the #BoycottVUSE campaign, and initiating the effort to install LED lights throughout the City of Toledo. Session 1 begins in mid-October (contingent on funding from Lucas County Jobs and Family services) and will start accepting applications in the middle of August. The Homies are funded through a partnership with the Farm Labor Organizing Committee, Lucas County Jobs and Family Services and Northwest Ohio Community Shares. For questions or to apply, contact Program Director Ted Marok at 419-243-3456.
