Thanks to support from funds from DC Council, AALEAD was able to take 8 high school students on a 2-day trip to Boston, MA from October 2-4, 2009.

The focus of the trip was to attend an: ASIAN AMERICAN WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE on Fearless Leadership: Taking Charge with Confidence.

“I learned a lot of things, the panelists have really made me think more about my future, I also like the fact I met some people from colleges, I am interested in we have things in common so I got their emails.” -11th grade AALEAD student

The students had
a chance to visit BOSTON and HARVARD UNIVERSITY and it was very motivational for them as they got the opportunity to get a taste of college life. We noticed that after the visits they started discussing different options for colleges, careers and ways to improve the grades in order to get admission in colleges.

On Saturday evening, the group had city tours of Boston, where we visited the famous Quincy Market/ Faneuil Hall, Boston Commons, and Newbury Street etc.

With the help of some additional donations,
AALEAD was able to take the girls to attend Blue Man Group in one of the theaters, which was very much appreciated by the students.
