AALEAD Board members visit Programs!

On April 20 and 21, AALEAD Board members came out to programs to visit our students.

It started with a MD Site Visit Day, where new Board member Will Choi shared about his life story with our middle and high school students. Students listened intently to what he had to say, and even asked him for internship opportunities!

On April 21, Board members visited our elementary sites were they learned how to make paper cranes from our 3rd-5th grade students. The students are currently working on a project to make 1,000 paper cranes for the Children's Hospital.

Board members Ria and Ban hold up their finished cranes!

Rosetta Lai (executive director) and Virginia also show off their finished cranes!

New Board member Amee made TWO cranes for each of her daughters! and Jimmy and his mentee swapped cranes!

Then the Board members moved on to Bancroft Elementary, where students were working on a Going Green project and making paper windmills. Below, Smita our Board chair, helps a student pin down his windmill.

Thanks for your support AALEAD Board Members~!
