Volunteer Month at AAMA

Vanessa Hernandez AAMA News


As National Volunteer Month closes, we celebrate you – our volunteers – and your service. Tutors, mentors, outreach assistants, office workers and corporate volunteer teams all inspire and empower AAMA students, clients and staff daily. Highlights of the month include:


  • 325 Starbucks partners, family and friends painted classrooms and hallways and freshened all the landscaping at the Gulf Freeway location during a Global Month of Service project on April 19. See photos at www.aama.org/photos/set/72/.


  • More than 150 Comcast and NBCUniversal employees along with family and friends transformed the interior of AAMA’s Casa Phoenix residential center for teen boys during Comcast Cares Day on April 26. Sparkling hallways and brightly colored rooms already are creating a more positive environment for change. See photos at www.aama.org/photos/set/75/.


Last year, volunteers donated more than 4,600 hours to AAMA – a value of $103,000 and an immeasurable impact in terms of lives changed.
