The Conscious Alliance www.consciousalliance.org creates opportunities for social action within music, art, and athletic communities to eliminate hunger and promote hunger awareness. We facilitate the redistribution of food to the hungry in cities and impoverished Indian Reservations.
Our New project Youth Against Hunger project (Y.A.H.) offers exciting alternative service-learning experiences for college students during their fall/spring breaks. Y.A.H synthesizes service learning by combining education and hands-on service. Y.A.H students learn about hunger related issues, as well as Lakota culture, by providing compassionate cross-cultural community service on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. While on the reservation, students lodge with community leaders Floyd and Natalie Hand, as they sort and distribute food to community members in need, aid with home repairs for Lakota families, participate in educational sessions with Lakota elders, and communicate with Pine Ridge college students and peers about current cultural, social, economic, and environmental issues. Conscious Alliance’s Y.A.H provides students with the knowledge and support they need to return to their respective communities and, using the skills they have acquired, create positive change in their local communities.
