On February 13, 2013, AACA celebrated the Chinese New Year with many of our employer and college partners, graduates, donors and friends. Over 100 people attended this successful and enjoyable evening at the China Pearl Restaurant in Boston Chinatown.
At the event, we showed a video “Reaching for Higher Goals” which highlights the success of some of our job training graduates and employers. AACA’s services do not stop at job placement. We provide job retention and advancement counseling to our graduates for two years to ensure their success in their careers.
