As a Program Associate for CaliforniaVolunteers, Jazmin oversaw a portfolio of AmeriCorps grants and worked with programs across the state to provide technical assistance on AmeriCorps grant compliance and policies. At Student Action with Farmworkers (based in Durham, North Carolina), she coordinated an internship and a fellowship program, organizing and training students from across the country to engage in the farmworker justice movement of the southeast. She conducted community outreach to raise awareness of issues related to farmworkers and garner support for organizational programs.
