AAH! health event: blood drive & cpr training 

Partnering with the American Red Cross, we held our annual blood drive. With an average of 35 donors, the event can contribute to saving the lives of up to 100 people. Thank you to those who contributed to addressing today's significant blood supply shortage!

There is currently an extreme shortage of blood needed for lifesaving transfusions, and the Red Cross is crucial in solving this issue. Even one donation can save up to three lives. A blood transfusion is needed every two seconds, and there is never enough supply to meet demand. 

Cards for kids event

Cardz For Kidz is a global non-profit organization dedicated to providing support, smiles, and encouragement to children, families, seniors, and veterans in hospitals, schools, and senior living. To support their mission, AAH held a card making event with students, parents, and others, making over 140 cards with 60 volunteers. A big thank you to everyone who supported us!

Organized by Elly Kang (co-founder) and Medha Gunda (Alpharetta Local Chapter head and Community Outreach Director)

ADOPT-A-MILE PROGRAM (Cobb County Govt.)

American Assimilation Helpline! Inc. has been a proud supporter of the Cobb County Keep Cobb Beautiful Adopt-A-Mile program. AAH! has officially adopted about a mile of Indian Hills Parkway, Marietta GA-30068. Clean-ups are held at every quarter first Sunday.  It’s not glamorous work, but it’s great to see our neighborhood clean and neat. And each time we clean up our mile, there seems to be less trash to collect, so we are confident that we are making a difference. AAH! Adopt a mile program is an excellent way for groups to work together to keep Cobb beautiful. Cobb County has been reputed as one of the most attractive communities in the Southeast. Let’s preserve this attribute!

What to Expect

  • Usually, it takes less than an hour for volunteers to pick up the trash that has accumulated and collect the orange bags in a central location for the county to pick up.

  • Bags, latex gloves, and safety vests are provided.

  • Covid-19 precautions are observed! We provide masks and we keep our distance.

  • Wear sturdy shoes or boots and bring gloves if you’d rather not use the latex gloves we provide.

  • Children under 13 are not allowed on the cleanups for safety reasons. Children 13 and over must be accompanied by an adult.

My name is Megha Yeddula, and I am a passionate and hard-working student. As a rising junior, I have taken higher-level courses in math, science, ELA, and social studies. Within the classroom, I am an active student and I have consistently scored well on my exams. I want to pass my strategies for effective learning onto a younger generation without access to tutors. As school becomes more competitive, students without educational access often struggle more than their peers who have more educational access. I have been fortunate enough to have tutors and instructors to help me excel in my studies. However, without these resources, my classes would be much more challenging. I hope to tutor for AAH to help kids who may not have these resources. I have lots of experience with teaching and tutoring, which I believe will make me a good candidate for this internship. After school, I tutor my peers on subjects they may be struggling with and provide them with resources and good study strategies. I have tutored for other organizations including Learning Links, Sewa, Smart Minds Tutoring, and American Assimilation Helpline in the past. This year, I held a job at Kumon - an afterschool tutoring program - and instructed many kids of various age groups. As a Kumon Instructor I: - engaged actively with students to build confidence in the subject matter and help improve study methods. - organized worksheets, utensils, and folders to maintain a clean learning environment. modeled professional behavior and good study habits both within and outside of the classroom. - assisted students with developing positive academic strategies to improve learning and boost self-confidence. - accurately graded completed worksheets and provided quality feedback to students and parents. I consider my job experience as leverage that can allow me to provide my experiences and ideas as a tutor. In addition, over the summer, I volunteered at the John Knox Presbyterian Church as a preschool teacher's assistant. As a teacher's assistant, I instructed students on basic academic concepts, introduced vocabulary, evaluated student progress, and worked with groups to focus on teaching handwriting. In school, I am an executive officer for the Freshman Mentoring program. This leadership position has given me the ability to engage with a variety of students to help them grow through high school. This experience has developed my approach to nurturing students. Ultimately, my experience in academics and volunteering will allow me to be an excellent and encouraging tutor.

I have over five years of experience as a tutor in various subjects. I volunteered to help kids in Math and ELA in elementary school and continued tutoring throughout middle and high school through external organizations such as Beta Club, Smart Minds Tutoring, and AAH. I am an officer of Smart Minds Tutoring due to my dedication to the nonprofit as a tutor. In my sophomore year of high school I lettered in community service, with around 20 hours being dedicated to tutoring. I am part of the Magnet program at Wheeler High School, which is an academically rigorous program. I have taken five AP classes in my freshman and sophomore years and I will be taking six to seven more in my junior year.

My name is Kayla. I am am 11th grade, magnet student at Wheeler High School. I have done a similar program to this one called ebook buddies which taught underserved children in the US to read.
