The experience takes approximately 20 minutes per group of about 20 participants followed by a 15 minute debrief, optional pledge and giveaways.

The entire experience is facilitated by professional staff and orchestrated by para‐professional student staff in the Residence Hall Association. Participants will have the opportunity to reflect on the difference one person can make in ending the cycle of oppression. Information, opportunities for activism, campus and community resources will be provided.

The FIP is a program that places students in the community to learn about farmworker rights and immigration issues. The FIP will guide students through a first-hand experience of typical farm work life in Ventura County. We will visit a local berry farm where students will learn about the agricultural business in our county, then work in the field as the farm manager instructs on how to harvest berries. In the afternoon, we will travel first to a health clinic for farm workers and then visit an affordable housing community to speak with farm worker families. Finally, we will come together for a group reflection and then return to campus for a Teatro Campesino performance by Performing Arts Capstone student, Phillip Sanders.

Participants will meet at the old bus station on San Luis Avenue and be taken by Roadrunner Shuttle to the FIP locations.
