Migrant Justice Volunteer Opportunity 

Migrant Justice is seeking Spanish-speaking volunteers who can travel to Vermont farms to help migrant workers and their families apply for the expanded Child Tax Credit. To claim the Child Tax Credit, migrant workers must fill out a W7 to apply for an Individual Tax Identification Number and submit their Form 1040, the individual income tax return.

The majority of migrant families in need of assistance are in Addison and Franklin counties, but volunteers from around the state are encouraged to reach out.

If you are interested in assisting with this project, please email info@migrantjustice.net with the subject “Child Tax Credit Assistance” for more information and to get connected to a family near you.

The Yale College of Medicine has partnered with the National Workforce Registry Alliance and Vermont’s child care registry to ensure that your voice is heard by policy leaders making health and economic decisions regarding child care. Last year over 80,000 child care professionals from all 50 states and U.S. territories participated in this study, making it the largest study of child care professionals ever conducted. The results of this ongoing survey will be used to shape policy recommendations to help keep you and your children safe and provide financial and other supports for child care programs and professionals.
