CASPY is currently recruiting for its 2019 board. If you are interested in the planning process, want to gain leadership experience, or have an amazing idea, consider applying for a board position!
So what is CASPY?
(Just in case you don't know)
CASPY (short for Chinese Adopted Siblings Program for Youth) is a bi-annual event that brings local children adopted from China and their families to Yale for a full-day program. We seek to educate and inform parents and adopted Chinese children about Chinese culture in a fun and relaxed setting. CASPY also works to connect Chinese adoptees back to their Chinese roots and to introduce them to the Asian American and Chinese American communities.
Descriptions of board positions can be found here.
Applications can be found here.
Applications are due SUNDAY JANUARY 20TH @ 11:59 pm.
CASPY has always been an immensely meaningful experience for the adoptees, their families and us, and we hope that you can join us on board this year!
Please feel free to email Audrey at or Vanessa at if you have any further questions!

The application deadline is February 21, 2019 at 5PM EST. See our website at and email with any questions.

Camp Kesem
Camp Kesem has released the counselor applications! If you’re unfamiliar with Camp Kesem, it is an organization with chapters across the country, each serving one purpose: to aid and support children impacted by a parent’s cancer. An entire year’s worth of planning and work goes into planning and running a week-long camp at the end of the summer, where children find a community filled with love, fun, and understanding. At Camp Kesem, they can be themselves again as they run around, and make friendships that go beyond the week of camp with campers and counselors alike.
In order for the magic of Kesem to come alive, however, we need a group of Yale’s most caring, most fun, and most creative individuals. We highly encourage everyone who enjoys working with kids, hates cancer, or any combination of the two to apply. The application process is brief, and believe me, could be life changing.
If you’re interested in becoming a superstar for children who need it most, just follow these steps:
1.    Begin by going to
2.    Click “Login” to create an account
3.    From the Login tab, click “sign up” in the bottom right corner
4.    Fill out your information, and make sure you’ve selected “Counselor” under “Select Registration Type”
5.    Once you’ve entered your information and signed up, it will direct you back to the Home page.
6.    Select “Pick a Camp.”
7.    Camp Kesem at Yale. Click on where it says “Register.”
8.    From there you can begin your application.
9.    Once you’ve completed the application, you can view the status on the “My Applications” tab.
Camp will be August 11 - August 17th, and just might be the best week of your life.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, you can contact our beautiful volunteer coordinators at

Yale Sustainable Food Program Announcements

Monday, January 21, 4:00 pm
Pierson College Common Room | 261 Park St., New Haven, CT 06511
What connects agriculture, land, and equity? In what ways can racial justice inform the future of land tenure in the American South, and beyond?
Join us for a Pierson College Tea on Martin Luther King Jr. Day as we invite Savi Horne, Executive Director of the Land Loss Prevention Project (LLPP), to share her insights on agricultural justice law. Director Horne will speak about her decades of experience in coalition-building and connecting underserved farmers with the resources and recourse they need.

Farming While Black: A Book Conversation with Leah Penniman, Soul Fire Farm
Tuesday, January 29, 6:00 – 7:30 pm
Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale, 211 Park St., New Haven, CT 06511
Some of our most cherished sustainable farming practices––from organic agriculture to the farm cooperative and community supported agriculture (CSA)––have roots in African wisdom. Yet, discrimination and violence against African-American farmers has led to a decline from 14 percent of all growers in 1920 to less than 2 percent today, with a corresponding loss of over 14 million acres of land. Further, black communities suffer disproportionately from illnesses related to lack of access to fresh food and healthy natural ecosystems.
Soul Fire Farm, cofounded by author, activist, and farmer Leah Penniman, is committed to ending racism and injustice in our food system. Extending this work is Leah’s recent and already widely acclaimed book, Farming While Black: Soul Fire Farm’s Practical Guide to Liberation on the Land. Join us as we host Leah for a book conversation, and to discuss how you can help build a food system based on justice, dignity, and abundance for all.
This event is free and open to the public, and is a kick-off event for Afro-American Cultural Center’s Black History Month programming. It is co-sponsored by the Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale and Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration. Here are further event details.
