In their words: Oakland teens reflect on their trip to Central America

This week I recorded a conversation with Luis Robles, 15, and Javi Becerra, 13, about their recent environmental education and service learning trip to Costa Rica. The two boys were among 10 students at Coliseum College Prep Academy in East Oakland (66th and International) who were chosen for the travel scholarship from the AFAR Foundation.

    I’m reminded of that Lee Strasberg line from GF2: “we have now what we have always needed — real partnership with a government.”

    Dear readers,

    The technical glitch that caused the video to play automatically has been fixed, and it shouldn’t happen again. Sorry about that.
