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.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly smart, talented and dedicated. They need more staff like Kendra Lee, the Director of Programs.

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.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremely friendly, helpful and willing to learn. They were open minded and shared their experiences.
