The San Francisco Day Labor Program & Women’s Collective unites, empowers, and organizes day laborers and domestic workers for dignified work and fair wages. They operate a leadership model where immigrant workers who come seeking employment and community become peer advocates, trainers, and community organizers. They operate the collective and advance the rights of immigrants, women, and low wage workers. At the Worker Center, beyond offering job opportunities, they serve as a second home; where members learn about their rights, are instilled with pride in their work and themselves, and participate in ESL, computer literacy, job training, and theater courses. They also have access to a medical clinic and food pantry. This program can offer a rich experience in service-provision, coaching, and community building for someone who is inspired and hoping to learn from their organization model and the wisdom of their members.
