As part of its commitment to creating quality educational opportunities for students in need, our New York chapter raised funds to donate to the Hanmaun Zen Center youth group's educational programs.
At YWCA, AAH! Bronx chapter and New York directors collaborated with their staff to help those in need during the holiday season. The chapter packed food and delivered gifts to kids in low-income families. Much thanks to the YWCA staff and volunteers for making it possible!
NEW YORK CHAPTER HELPING IMMIGRANTS IN NEED!
By running an event in Flushing, New York, through the Minkwon Center, the New York AAH! chapter helped immigrants set up apps that make them aware of how prevalent COVID-19 is in their communities and connect to smart thermometers tracking their health. The members also helped guide those interested in resources such as a health insurance plan and food stamps.
This initiative is a part of our mission of helping those in need, such as immigrants.
NEW YORK CHAPTERs HELPING IMMIGRANT communities!
Five of our local chapters in New York volunteered at Randalls Island to help with lowering food prices for immigrant communities. They regularly took part in agricultural initiatives easing cost burdens on the community.
AAH! New York chapters held our social justice outreach event in collaboration with NHFNM to help the refugees in Myanmar (formerly Burma). Our group was there to help set up and run the street fair from 7:30 am -1:00 pm.
Thank you to all the volunteers who came out to our environmental conservation outreach event today at Little Bay Park. Although the weather was hot, everyone worked hard to clean up the area and give back to our community. **Our volunteers removed over 400 gallons of garbage!! *We were interviewed and filmed by a former CBS newsman.

Hi, my name is Matthew Huang and I am currently a senior at Stuyvesant High school in New York City. I have been tutoring at the American Assimilation Helpline! (AAH!) since 2020. It has been such a rewarding experience tutoring and mentoring students of diverse backgrounds domestically and internationally and fulfilling their educational needs. I have also been proud to positively impact my local community by organizing various outreach events including an environmental conservation park clean up effort, environmental sustainability and food scarcity urban farm event, social justice fundraiser benefiting the refugees of Myanmar, health awareness for local immigrants.
At Stuyvesant, I am the AAH! Stuy Chapter President, Arista member, staff news writer at Spectator, and compete on the robotics team. Advanced classes that I have taken include AP Calculus BC, AP Literature, AP Macroeconomics, AP Comparative Government (intended), AP US History, AP Government, AP English, AP Chemistry, AP European History, AP Biology & a host of other honor courses.
Combining my interest in the digital humanities and history, I interned at the New York Historical Society as a Student Historian Teen Leader researching, storyboarding, and scripting to create podcasts, digital games, videos, and tours of the museum. I have also worked online for SchoolHouse.World as an SAT tutor. Since then I have become the co-lead for the Blog team, a part of the Onboarding team and Coaching team. In these roles, I direct tutors and peer reviewers on effective teaching and work to drive tutor quality initiatives.
In addition, I have a strong interest in historical research-writing, political science, and law. I have been a research assistant to a college professor analyzing historical databases. My interest in the marginalization of voting rights for minority communities and prison reform also led me to co-found a journal dedicated to these issues. In regard to law, I have become interested in studying corporate, labor, and constitutional law. Pursuing these interests, I interned at QLW Law Firm and participated in the National Labor Relations Board Student Ambassador Program. Going into my senior year, I am excited to participate in the NYU High School Law Institute Program. During my free time, I enjoy playing basketball, kayaking and swimming, and mountain biking.
I know the value of having someone guide and support you through their experience, expertise, and advice. So I truly want to pay the positive experience forward. I appreciate AAH! as a tremendous platform and the role I have undertaken to spread this worthy cause.
