Our goal last year at Accelere was to make a laboratory to grow out tilapia for our shelters. Mllard Extension students discovered how to breed the fish to keep this project as a sustainable food source for communities. Our goal is to be a resource for communities on how to make these sustainable farming.
It is a film documentary project that will be divided in chapters. The first one will deal with food and energy inputs and how this energy is processed by the urban ecosystem, nurturing the whole bunch of especies that live and interact in the ecosystem. The project will be produced in July 2017 and we will need a group of collaborators for that matter. Volunteers interested in film making and our environment, please, do not hesitate to contact me.
our wish is to help poor people by giving them food and water.
We are going to collect food and create snack bags for homeless children who are in an after school care environment.
To complete this project, we applied for (and received!) two small grants to help with purchasing supplies. We researched and selected the most appropriate structure for our budget. We also met with our cafeteria service in regards to the farm-to-table portion of the project. And, of course, we had a community build date when we raised the structure!

My group will be selling bracelets and headbands from Haiti and we have also ordered Haitian flag stickers to sell at our booth. This is just a small sale but it will take a lot of preparation.

the American Community Middle School is putting on a 3 - night play. I, along with three of my club members will be hosting the Concessions for the play. Our Haiti Sees Club and Roots and Shoots club will be bringing baked goods in to sell.
KYE-YAC will once again team up with FIRST, an organization created by world renowned engineer and scientist, Dean Kaman. FIRST is an acronym for: (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology.) KYE-YAC will support FIRST teams in the World robotic competition by raising funding to help get a regional champion team to Houston to compete against international teams. Our support will allow a local/regional team to learn valuable STEM and life skills. They will also be eligible for over $50 million dollars in scholarships.
Our team of volunteers will assemble at the Jackson House and begin to cook and package meals. Once the preparation process is finalized, the packed lunches will be distributed to impoverished members of the community.
I'm currently researching information about the various local soup kitchens. I will be contacting them shortly to coordinate the visit. I will also invite the students from my school to participate.
