AALead is such a great organization. It is so needed in the DC area. They're doing an amazing job with Asian American youth in the region and are serving a population that is often overlooked but just as much in need.
This organization set representatives to the 2009 Service-Learning Institute. They also had a private training on service-learning with the Learn and Serve Program Officer at Serve DC - The Mayor's Office on Volunteerism. Their office members were very interested in learning to better serve their community.
