      Sustainable Harvest InternationalSustainable Harvest International (SHI), an environmental nonprofit with over 25 years of experience partnering with smallholder farmers to adopt regenerative practices, is excited to host YASC volunteers for a week of service this summer with two SHI partnering communities (Piedras Gordas and Bermejo). This service trip and future ones will contribute to SHI's work to train Central American farmers in farming techniques that nourish families and help restore our planet.

      Presented below is a list of projects that we anticipate offering:

      •    Community Garden - volunteers will construct a community garden and make organic fertilizers (e.g., bokashi) at the school grounds or homes of families in the community.
      •    Reforestation/Agroforestry - volunteers will help create agroforests by establishing coffee plantations and planting a variety of trees that provide food, timber, shade and carbon sequestration while restoring wildlife habitat.
      •    Regenerative Agriculture - volunteers will help establish regenerative agriculture plots to increase farm production, carbon sequestration and biodiversity through activities such as making organic fertilizers (including compost), building terraces, or erosion control measures, creating plant nurseries and planting staple crops (e.g. corn, beans, rice and medicinal plants).
      •    Light Duty Project Ideas - we are exploring a few project ideas in case the primary activities are too physically demanding for some participants.
      •    Health & Nutrition Workshop - volunteers will give a health and nutrition workshop to community members sharing information and tips on how to prepare healthy recipes with produce grown and consumed by SHI farming families.
      •    Community Signs - volunteers will paint signs raising environmental awareness to be placed throughout the school grounds and within the community.

      Additionally, there's also the possibility for some volunteers to measure impacts of the shift to agroecology on SHI farms. Depending on the skills of the volunteers, this could focus on one or more of the following: general soil testing, soil biodiversity with eDNA testing, farm biodiversity through ecoacoustic surveys, collection of coordinates for shape files for future AI assessments and measurements of carbon in soils and trees.

      For questions or further information feel free to contact trip producer Alicia Morris ’99 or João Aleixo at the YAA.

Jordan is a graphic novelist, game designer, and screenwriter. He created the video game Prince of Persia in 1989. Prince of Persia is considered an all-time classic, as well as the basis for a transmedia global franchise with over 20 million games sold to date. Since 2017, Jordan has lived in France, where he made his debut as a graphic-novel writer/artist this year with the autobiographical Replay (2023) where he interweaves his own career as a pioneering American video game developer with his family's back story of surviving two European world wars. The origin stories behind Mechner's iconic games take on deeper meaning in this intergenerational epic of transmission, the creative life, and the enduring challenge of holding a family together in an ever-changing world.

      College Visions is a 20-year-old Providence non-profit that empowers low-income students to gain college admission and succeed once there. Every student in the 2023–2024 class of their College Access Program was admitted to college, with destinations comprising URI, RIC, CCRI, Bentley, Hampshire, Smith, Stanford, and UMass Boston. Learn more about CV at https://collegevisions.org/

      Our job will be to give a practice college-admission interview to each of the 90 students voluntarily enrolled in CV’s Summer Prep Program and to provide feedback to them.

      No prior college interviewing experience is required. Written briefing will be provided beforehand. You are welcome to bring along any college-grad friends or family to interview too.

      There will be a 9:00–10:30 “A” session and a 11:30–1:00 “B” session, each divided into half-hour interview slots. Volunteers are encouraged to come for the entire A or B session (or both) to simplify logistics, but you can come for any two or more interviews. Please plan to arrive at least 10 minutes before your first interview.

      Spanish-speaking volunteers will be especially appreciated. A handful of students will be English-language learners and we want them to be focused on interview skills, not language.

      This event follows the successful YARI-led interview program for CV’s 2022 summer program (photo above), which drew volunteers from many colleges. It will be an intercollegiate effort again. It was a fun and rewarding time for the interviewers. For many of the students it was the first time in an interview situation. They get so much out of it, and they carry the experience for life. They truly appreciate it.

      Thanks for stepping forward to help them leap ahead!
