Hi, my name is Jose Mendoza, I am RHS’s newest agricultural program worker. While in high school, during my spring breaks, I would volunteer at a similar program in NC that my sister was working at. Volunteering there opened my eyes to the agricultural world and how many migrant workers were lacking basic healthcare. My parents were agricultural workers when they first arrived in the US, so when I look at agricultural workers, I see my own family. I am from Fairfield, California. We moved to SC when I was still young, and we have lived here ever since. My hobbies include playing sports, listening to audiobooks, hiking, and watching movies. My life motto is “If you don’t do it, who will?”
I serve as the Agricultural Worker Program Coordinator and have been serving the community for six total years. I am originally from Los Angeles, CA but was raised in SC. My greatest passion is to help the Latino community in any way possible.
