Hi Alisa and Natalie,

I am also really interested in your academy proposal and have been thinking about biofuel production at a community level as a way to create economic pathways for young adults from communities with high levels of youth unemployment and poverty. It definitely could serve as a social entrepreneurship model with the additional benefit of environmental sustainability.  I am based in CA where we have a network of Local Conservation Corps as well as the California Conservation Corps that would be absolutely suited for this type of work on a community scale if the economic incentive and career opportunities viable for young adults.

I am open to collaboration if either of you are interesting in working in CA.
