Youth and Leaders Living Actively (Yalla)
YALLA is originally a non-profit organization that brings together kids/teens who were in refugee camps or migrants to the US to come play soccer but YALLA also has an academic side to help minority or low income teens come in twice a week for SAT prep classes and tips for applying to college or for a career after college.
During the summer out of the 300 applicants 80 were chosen to do a paid internship with one of the lead engineering corporations qualcomm. During that time I learned everything from engineering tasks to leadership skills, corporation skills because of my constant collabration with others. This internship prepared me for the real life work force which I believe is a certain advantage when finding a job.
Elementary School Teachers Assistant
SInce my school didn't start until september while most schools started in August I would donate my time in becoming a teachers assistant and I would do jobs from: making copies, grading work, helping the kids with class work, or my favorite was being in charge of reading groups because I loved reading the books with the kids and asking them questions about the book and exchanging opinions with the kids.
