BACKGROUND: Founded in 1933, the International Rescue Committee is a leading, non-sectarian, non-profit organization providing emergency relief, protection, rehabilitation assistance, resettlement services, and advocacy for refugees and victims of oppression or violent conflict.  Domestically, our 22 offices across the U.S. ensure new arrivals have food, shelter, and clothing, and work with refugees to help them gain self-sufficiency.  New Roots is an innovative agriculture and food access program that provides opportunities for refugees to garden, start farm-based businesses, and access healthy, local, culturally appropriate produce.   

SCOPE OF WORK: The IRC in Dallas New Roots program creates opportunities for refugees to garden in community gardens near their homes. The New Roots Specialist will participate in curriculum development, data tracking, and evaluations for the gardening program, and will cultivate relationships with partners, donors, and volunteers to support program growth.
