National Association of Resource Conservation & Development Councils

RC&D Councils are 501(c)3 non-for-profit corporations. They are not governmental entities, so the typical policies and constraints of local, state, and federal government programs do not limit the types of issues they address or the means they use. Within their respective areas (typically covering 5-8 counties), RC&D Councils have a high degree of independence to carry out activities that will achieve their most important goals. RC&D Council volunteers are leaders and community stakeholders involved in multiple roles in local government, school boards, churches, and other civic activities. At RC&D Council meetings, they draw from their professional expertise and community connections to determine the needs of their RC&D Council areas, address those needs, and make their communities better places to live, work, and play. Nationwide, over 25,000 volunteers serve on local RC&D Councils. Our programs involve: Youth Engagement Underserved and Beginning Farmers Engagement Farm Bill outreach Urban Ag Initiatives Veteran Farmers Engagement Rural Economic Development Human Resource Development

REO’s National Farmworker Jobs Program has two specific goals. This includes helping farmworker families become economically self-sufficient through training and employment services. Montana?s agricultural workers and their spouse, children and other dependents have access to educational programs to complete their high school credentials, access and complete job training (such as CDL, CNA, and technical programs and seminars), and college certificates or degrees. The program services adults and youth 18-24. These opportunities lead to full-time employment, improved family income, and greater economic security. In addition, REO provides emergency services, such as food and gas, to seasonal and migrant workers living in Montana and traveling to Montana for employment purposes. Not all offices have a Spanish speaking individual. Those needing this service should call Jesse at 406-839-7852.
