Review for AFRO AMERICAN DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION, Moorhead, MN, USA
I have had the opportunity to work with the members of AADA on several occasions. During these times we have discussed the role they play in the community and their desire to grow and continue providing services to assist new Americans and refugees.
Not only have I heard their mission, I have been fortunate enough to witness the extremely important role they have in the Moorhead schools and community. It is during these times that I have gained a true appreciation for the impact they have on the new Americans as they are seeking assistance in all areas.
When I have contacted them for help (weekly), they are always eager, informed and passionate. They have provided an unfounded level of support for the Moorhead School District and the English learning families.
They have earned and gained the respect and trust from the community that they so well deserve. Their members are kind, dedicated, driven and determined to make a difference. They have a firm grasp on the meaning of community and the importance of communication.
AADA strives to help bridge the gap between cultures. They mentor students with homework, they provide support within the schools, they teach adults how to speak English, they assist with city transportation, they offer training and teach the skills needed for job readiness. They are extremely interested in the success of those who come to them for guidance and direction.
