Folks around the area have an opportunity to help the people who play a vital role in the agriculture industry.

The East Coast Migrant Head Start program in Vincennes is looking for teachers and staff.

The program is dedicated to providing services for the families of migrant and seasonal workers.

Trained teachers and staff provide early childhood education for migrant children around the country.

It’s a service that is vital to migrant families, because otherwise their children often end up working in the fields beside them.

The Vincennes location will reopen on July 18th and preparations are underway.

First City News spoke with Family Health Coordinator Ruby Velazquez, who says they’re looking to hire more teachers,  maintenance workers and even take on a few volunteers.

She says being a part of a program like this is very rewarding.

The program serves children anywhere from six weeks of age through kids up to six years old.
