The Kalmanovitz Initiative’s Day Laborer Exchange (DLE) Program is a community-based education program. During the program students learn about day laborers as well as structural issues affecting the day laborer community.
Students, as new allies to the laborers, will facilitate small groups of day laborers practicing basic English skills and learning about worker rights at a site where day laborers are seeking work. Opportunities for advocacy and involvement in events supporting the day laborer community may also arise.
The experience of working side-by-side with day laborers will be supplemented by facilitated reflection sessions and will serve as the basis for critical analysis. To learn more or get involved, please contact Nick Wertsch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
