Job openings – ENYF Project Director and UCC Development Associate


This year, East New York Farms! turned 15. As we reach this milestone, we have exciting news to share with our friends and members. As many of you know, I will be leaving my position as ENYF Project Director this fall. I am thrilled to announce that David Vigil, our former Farm Manager and current Youth Program Director, will be taking over as our new Project Director. David is a capable and committed leader, and his seven years with ENYF have prepared him well for this role. David’s promotion also opened up an opportunity for Roy Frias to join our staff as Youth Program Director. Though a new staff member, Roy is not new to our program at all.Roy was an intern with ENYF from 2002—2006, a volunteer, and an ‘extern’ in our alumni program. A recent graduate of the Public Allies fellowship, Roy is passionate and skilled, and we are so deeply proud to have him join our staff.

We’ll be celebrating our anniversary in two ways!
* On Saturday October 19th, 9am – 3pm, 
we’ll host special performances and activities at our market, including a performance from East NY’s own Grace Drums.

* We will also be sharing a special series of interviews conducted in partnership with StoryCorps. We’ll be posting a new interview each day, starting today! Check our YouTube pageFacebook page, and website to hear each of these beautiful profiles of the amazing people who make our work possible.

Our 15th Anniversary newsletter tells more about all that we have accomplished together since 1998. Many of you have supported our work before in multiple ways, and I hope you can help us celebrate our anniversary and this very exciting time with an investment in our next 15 years. For more information on how to support our work with a donation of any size, click here.
My last day on staff full-time will be Friday November 22nd, but as you all know, I love ENYF and UCC, so I’ll still be around from time to time. I will send out personal contact info next month so that we can all stay in touch.
With gratitude,

East New York Farms!
