ARCAS is a non-profit Guatemalan NGO formed in 1989 by a group of Guatemalan citizens who became concerned as they saw their native wildlife rapidly disappearing before their eyes. ARCAS’s goal is to improve the chances of survival and conservation of endangered species and their habitat. At its Pacific coast site of Hawaii, it manages one of the most productive sea turtle hatcheries in Guatemala, rescuing nearly 50,000 olive ridley and leatherback eggs per year in an attempt to help conserve these beautiful and threatened species.

The goal of the Tinker Tour, a nationwide bus trip, is to bring real-life civics lessons to schools and communities through my story and those of other young people.

Grow Dat Youth Farm’s mission is to nurture a diverse group of young leaders through the meaningful work of growing food. We bring this mission to life by hiring teenagers to grow food for their community on our farm. 60% of the produce we grow is sold at local farmers markets and to restaurants. The other 40% is shared with New Orleanians who don't have access to fresh, healthy food. Through the work of farming, our youth employees learn how to work together, communicate effectively, cook delicious meals and provide for their community.
