Current Narrative:

Coordinating outreach efforts with NFJP grantees as well as with public and private community service agencies and MSFW groups

To maintain targeted service levels, outreach services are supplemented through partner agencies. Informal cooperative agreements with other public and private social service agencies, such as local providers of the NFJP, are established to provide joint outreach efforts to the MSFW population. For PY 2016, approximately 531 additional contacts were made through nonfinancial agreements with cooperating agencies.

A memorandum of understanding outlining outreach efforts was executed with the Florida Department of Education’s FCDP, the state’s NFJP grantee. The memorandum outlines requirements for significant career center outreach staff and FCDP local provider staff to supply information about other partner programs and services during individual outreach efforts, conduct outreach jointly when feasible, and report outreach activities and contacts to the other party. Career centers with agricultural activity that do not meet the ten percent criteria for the significant career center designation are required to have nonfinancial agreements with cooperating agencies.

The MSFW outreach workers maintain a continuing relationship with community groups, public agencies and advocacy groups involved in the welfare of farmworkers. Contact is made with agricultural employers for possible job openings and outreach workers to assist career center staff in recruiting MSFWs for specific job orders.
