"Volunteering on Saturday mornings at CASL is the highlight of my week. It was exciting to combine AB's service mission and COT students in this event." ~Karen Ng, AB Co-Chair/COT Volunteer since June 2012
A big thank you to all the AB volunteers who attended the Cup of Tea event on August 17. The special COT session provided students with much needed opportunity for listening and speaking English. Volunteers received a brief training and conducted one-on-one lessons with students, focusing on conversational skills. The lesson was followed by a delicious lunch in Chinatown!
Cup of Tea is the only CASL program that is entirely run by volunteers. Every Saturday, 10-15 volunteers lead interactive English lessons in small group settings to teach students functional English skills. Volunteers sign up week to week, and no long term commitment is needed. The next special AB+COT event will be in winter 2014.

You Rocked the ROOF!
Thank you so much for those who attended AB's Happy Hour Social event at ROOF on theWit on July 11. The sun was shining and all of us were smiling as we enjoyed the roof top views. Over 50 attendees contributed over $300 worth of craft supplies and $200 cash for the School Age Center.
CASL's SAC is part of the Child Education & Development Services Department. With summer in full swing, SAC has 40-50 students daily in attendance and was in great need of craft supplies for their classrooms. Our successful event brought them over $500 of supplies: play dough, markers, color pencils, poster board, construction paper, glue sticks, pencils, erasers and pipe cleaners. The kids are the direct beneficiary of your generosity!
