CELEBRATING 2022 SELFLESS SENIORS
In its 14th year, Selfless Seniors aims to shine the spotlight on students who work behind the scenes to make our ABQ community a better place to live. Selfless Seniors are dedicated to helping others without expecting praise or recognition.
One student from each APS comprehensive high school and one magnet school was chosen from nominations submitted by school staff, non-profit organizations, and the community.

We want to take a moment to thank our hard working volunteers from both Eldorado High School and West Mesa High School. These APS high school students are dedicated to helping their community!
GGAB is looking for volunteers to help make our community impact possible. Our reach is expanding quickly and so is our need for helping hands.

TEAMING UP WITH ABQ READS
ABQ Reads is a program of the Career Guidance Institute and a nonprofit entity of the Greater ABQ Chamber of Commerce working in partnership with Albuquerque Public Schools. ABQ Read's mission is to boost literacy achievement among
struggling young readers in Albuquerque.
GGAB is thrilled to participate in the ABQ Reads Mentoring Program working with students and encouraging reading in our APS schools.
CHECK IT OUT
The Reading with Shepherd Daisy program encourages children to read with their pets for just 15 minutes a day. That 15 minutes a day can enhance the confidence of young readers and encourage a love of reading. The Reading With Shepherd Daisy event held in March was a great example of what is possible when the community comes together to support our youth!
