Volunteer Spotlight: Ayleen
Meet Ayleen! As a volunteer in our Match Grant* program, Ayleen was paired with a newly arrived family from Afghanistan, and helped them to get settled into their new life here in America. She helped the family (who was expecting a new baby!) get to medical appointments, tutored them in English, and basically mentored them as they adjusted to life in a brand new country. For National Volunteer Week, we asked Ayleen to tell us a little about why she volunteers, and what she gets out of it.
