Recommended Posts

Guest Micah Shearer

Do you want to make a difference and have a positive impact on the lives of under-served Asian-American youth in Washington, D.C. or Montgomery county? Volunteer as a tutor for one of Asian American LEAD's After-school Programs!


AALEAD is a non-profit organization that provides educational and youth development programs to under-served Asian American youth in the DC/MD area. Our diverse staff and team of volunteers deliver after-school programs, one-on-one mentoring, academic support services and life-skills development for students. We also assist parents with school-related issues affecting their children. AALEAD's goal is to provide a nurturing environment and culturally-sensitive guidance, so that each child we serve will be a contributing member of his or her community. In December of 2008, we were featured by the Washingtonian magazine as one of the DC area's 64 best charities!


AALEAD After-school programs empower students to excel academically, develop positive self identity, demonstrate responsible behavior, and get involved in their community. AALEAD serves students from over twelve different ethnicities in grades pre-K to 12th. Afterschool program activities include:


  • homework support and tutoring
  • Academic, cultural, and leadership workshops
  • Guest speakers
  • recreational activities and field trips
  • community service opportunities
  • College preparation workshops
  • Student youth councils


What will you do:


  • Tutor students one-on-one or in small groups
  • Encourage and assist students to engage with program activities
  • Help foster a positive classroom dynamic
  • Assist site coordinator with program activities as needed


How much time do you have to commit?

  • Time commitment is flexible, but most tutors spend around 1.5 to 2 hours a week, between the hours of 2:30 pm and 7:00 pm.


For more information about volunteering call Micah Shearer at (202) 884-0322 ext 106 between the hours of 10AM-6PM Monday-Friday, or e-mail mshearer@aalead.org.
