Steve Archambault worked on the promotion and assessment of WFP’s Marketing Support activities, mobilizing small farmers in Uganda to secure better access to food markets.

Steve served as a volunteer for two years in Micronesia through the Jesuit Volunteer International Program, teaching high school science, and working on sustainable development projects involving marine aquaculture.
