Labor laws allow children as young as twelve years old to work in agriculture with their parent's consent. However, children of all ages can be found working in the fields.
Sponsor a SAF student's travel
SAF is purchasing flights for 13 students from farmworker backgrounds to come to North Carolina to participate in the Into the Fields internship and leadership development program this summer. With gas prices climbing, we are seeing flight prices exceeding our budget. Please consider donating your frequent flier miles so that a student can participate in this internship program.
REMEMBER...Most airlines require a minimum of 20-25,000 miles to get a free roundtrip ticket. We cannot accept partial miles donations. The easiest way to donate miles is for you to book the ticket for the student directly. We will select the itinerary and give you all the pertinent information to book the ticket. Your donation will be tax deductible!
Check how many miles you have through your credit card rewards program or in your airline Frequent Flyer accounts:

Please contact us by April 19th so we can purchase plane tickets before the prices rise any more!
