AACA has partnered with local organizations, residents, and city officials to build the Clean-Up Chinatown initiative. Among the partners is the Josiah Quincy Elementary School (JQS). With the support of Dr. Simon Ho, the principal, and Amy Guen of AACA, Social Capital Inc. AmeriCorps member, Danni Jones, will visit classrooms throughout the school year to guide students in becoming civically engaged as they participate in the cleaning up Chinatown. We seek to help students understand the value of their efforts and the potential they have to positively influence their community. Amy Guen, pictured here taking in the neighborhood view from the outdoor play space at JQS, has been a dedicated community advocate for many years. This new collaboration with JQS is a true marker of Guen’s legacy, the tradition of community activism, being passed to today’s children and future generations.
