Visitors to Monterey may make a difference via the Kind Traveler site by donating to Rancho Cielo Youth Campus in Salinas (where Cesar Chavez was imprisoned in 1970 for spearheading a lettuce boycott, campaigning for the rights of field workers). Rancho Cielo helps low-income area teens graduate from high school and enter the workforce by providing them with vocational training in agriculture, car repair, construction, and culinary arts. Any amount donated by a Kind Traveler user to Rancho Cielo, whether it $10 or $1,000, will be given in full.A pre-fixe meal at the ranch was a Travel Kindly Experience I arranged and looked forward to. A group of around forty students from Rancho Cielo's Drummond Culinary Academy prepare and serve these meals every Friday throughout the school year. While the students in the kitchen toiled to prepare and plate our orders (which included cioppino, blood orange and olive oil cake, and a pear and arugula salad), we sat in the dining room. Some students worked at the front of the house, where they gained experience interacting with the public and perfecting their people skills.
