Upcoming Workshops for Students and Families 

Student Workshops

NYC has such a rich immigrant community and rarely do our students get to see themselves

reflected in the greatness that manifests in their schools, communities, and greater NYC.

Through citywide student engagement, thousands of high school students will be able to opt

into a series of workshops to help them understand their rights, the postsecondary options

available to them, and the appropriate steps to take to plan for the pathway of their choosing.

Please review and share our upcoming virtual workshops for students:

Family Workshops

Families and caregivers play a significant role in supporting the postsecondary preparation and access of their students . However, the entry point and resources are not always clear, easily accessible or center the experience and needs of immigrant, undocumented, and mixed status families. Through citywide immigrant family engagement, we aim to ensure families have ongoing workshops and resources to help them safely navigate high school and understand the amazing possibilities for their students after high school.

  • They pay their farmers and makers fairly: For every dollar sold on Farm To People, 50 cents go back to the farmer, while the national average remains below 15 cents.


  • Farm To People also gives back to its local community: They donate approximately 1000 pounds of food monthly to multiple food rescue organizations.
