Thanks, Shane. http://www.wwoof.net is a grass roots level organization that cultivates international relations and understanding through nutrition, globally. Can we apply this model to address high unemployment among youth, to simultaneously build vital infrastructure, from the autobahn to the infobahn? The recent Napa earthquake prompts thoughts of Clinton's Public Works initiative, and his visit to LA earlier this year (http://articles.latimes.com/2014/apr/03/local/la-me-ln-clinton-garcetti-20140403). An interesting challenge would be to create a compelling mechanism for student's educational costs to be offset by their participation in public works, perhaps through subsidies? An exchange program, so to speak... What do you think?
