How We Impact the Community

The Napa Valley Farmworker Foundation provides free education, mentorship, and professional development training to all of Napa Valley’s farmworkers. Since its founding in 2011, we have invested $12 million, provided 3232 hours of education, and impacted 25,000 farmworkers and families. Our 14-member education committee, which determines all educational programming, shares similar experiences, backgrounds, and types of employment as the community we serve. By providing adult literacy classes that range from English, math, and technology programs as well as financial literacy workshops on financial planning, general banking, and business budgets to workshops on safety, sustainable farming practices, management, and leadership training, and mentorship, farmworkers and their families have gained more opportunity for personal and professional growth. In turn, they have become leaders in our community and in the workplace, and as a result, have strengthened our Napa Valley community at large.


I had never taken English classes before and this was a nice experience. I was often afraid of speaking English, and I ended up being the student speaker for the English Class Graduation.
