AALEAD's mission is to promote the well-being of Asian American youth through education, leadership, and community building. We are the leading community organization that provides educational enrichment and youth development programs to underserved Asian American youth in the Washington, DC metro area. Our staff delivers specialized afterschool programs, one-on-one mentoring, academic support services, and life-skill development for students. We also assist parents with school-related issues affecting their children. Our 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.
