My younger brother is a volunteer for this organization and about a month ago I had the opportunity to experience one of their community events firsthand. It was a small scale event but I was impressed by the way it was conducted. First of all the activity engaged the participants in a fun way that many other Asian activities often don't. I'm an Asian American myself and in my personal experience most 'cultural activities' are kind of boring-usually the most exciting being running to Chinatown to get some food. The kids involved in this activity were given materials and being shown how to make hand-made lanterns for the moon festival. Secondly, it was a truly multicultural event. There were people of many different races in attendance and I was touched by the willing participation of people from so many backgrounds. I'm not a member of the organization but this one's got my vote. If I were still in high school I'd definitely volunteer.
