Great Expectations is a Virginia Community College System initiative that provides educational, vocational, and financial support to those adolescents (18 years and older) who have 'aged out' of foster care. These young adults often have a sporadic educational history, are lacking stable familial resources and guidance, and must choose minimum wage jobs just to provide for themselves. To give these young adults a chance at a college degree and a rewarding career, coaches and tutors from VCCS help with career and major assessments, paperwork and applications, subject tutoring, connections to scholarships, advise on a low-cost and rewarding education, and provide emergency funding. Great Expectations prepares youth for professional and personal success and provides an essential support structure for young adults who have, through no fault of theirs, ended up on their own.

from http://www.ashevillefm.org/the-final-straw/04/2013/stop-the-spread-of-ge-trees-in-the-south-before-it-starts: Anne Petermann, of the Global Justice Ecology Project, joins us this week to talk about the threats posed by Genetically Engineered Trees getting released into the U.S. as the USDA considers allowing Arborgen to found millions of acres of plantations across the southern U.S. These plantations, reaching from Texas to South Carolina, where the company is based, could destroy forest diversity, kill wildlife, exacerbate droughts, feed fire storms (not Firestorm), and spread quickly with the help of cold-resistant gene modification. In the last week of May, Asheville will be hosting a Biotech Tree conference. Concurrently, Katuah Earth First! and GJEP (along with other projects) will be holding protests and workshops around the issues of GE Trees to educate the public and grow resistance. http://www.treebiotech2013.org/ http://globaljusticeecology.org/stopgetrees.php On Mapuche resistance in Chile, check out: https://chileboliviawalmapu.wordpress.com/ http://wccctoronto.wordpress.com/ The tracklist can be found here: http://www.ashevillefm.org/node/6716 Archives of this show and contact can be found at thefinalstrawradio.noblogs.org
