Next Meeting: Jan-19-2023: Ashley Bryant - 3 Strands, a Global Organization for Freedom
Our next speaker Ashley Bryant, CEO and Co-Founder of 3 Strands Global Foundation, had the following reflections about her recent past and the accomplishments and plans of 3 Strands: "I recently went back to school to get my master’s in public administration while running 3Strands Global Foundation full-time. My courses at Cornell University were tough and stretched me to think about how we address ending human trafficking. I thought about the programs we offer, how we deliver prevention, and about all our outcomes over the past 12 years. As I reflected, I realized we reached many pinnacle moments this year as we celebrated:
• The PROTECT program reached over 110,000 educational staff trained
• 750,000+students educated in nine different states
• Served over 700 survivors and at-risk individuals through our Employ + Empower program
• Opened our San Jose Employ + Empower program
• Reached 30 workforce development staff with BRAVE (Best Practices and Approaches for Victims of Exploitation)

Last Meeting, Jan-12-2023: Melissa Neal - EDC Ag in the Classroom


Melissa Neal, Executive Director, described the goals, accomplishments and needs of her organization: El Dorado County Ag in the Classroom.  AITC is a local, grassroots, charitable organization that provides quality agriculture-related educational resources, programs, and training opportunities to cultivate through education an understanding and appreciation of how important and all-encompassing agriculture is in our daily lives. 

AITC's two major programs are: 
1) The Farm Day event:  AITC and other volunteers have hosted thousands of our local third graders from Lake Tahoe to El Dorado Hills for a day of hands-on, place-based, agricultural education. Farm Day is a fun, hands-on field trip where students and teachers experience the sights, sounds, smells and feels of agriculture and its role in our everyday lives, our county, and its economy.  Throughout the day, students and their teachers rotate to 6-8 different learning stations taught in the context of local farms, ranches, forests, and watersheds to learn about farms, natural resources, food, nutrition, and animals.  Learning stations are presented by organizations, businesses, and people who are experts in their field.  Over 300 volunteers from farms and Ag related businesses participate in the event held at the County Farigrounds in Placerville.  Melissa showed us a fun video of Farm Day.
2) The Fields of Learning Program pairs a school with a local farm to enhance students’ education through hands-on agricultural experiences. This ongoing relationship between the school and local farm includes three farm visits per year and gives children the opportunity to learn about local agriculture and its role in their community.
