E'ROOTHA MISSION STATEMENT
E'rootha, the Chaldean Assyrian Syriac Youth Union, through cultural awareness, community service and education, is dedicated to promoting the well-being of our community for the betterment of society.
WHAT WE DO
The Youth Refugee Mentoring Program involves helping middle school students with reading and homework assignments in a one-on-one style between leader and student. The program is currently looking for volunteers for our 2014 program beginning in January running through June! Sessions are Wednesdays at Jeannette Junior High from 3:00-4:30 p.m. Please click the link below for more information regarding this program.
Are you interested in learning the traditional Chaldean, Assyrian, Syriac dances? Wish you could do the Khigga at weddings, but are afraid that your dancing skills will make you stand out for all the wrong reasons? E’rootha wants to help! Sign up for E’rootha’s Beginners dance classes to learn basic folk dances. We break down all the dances, step by step, focusing on proper footwork and shoulder movements. After completion of the Beginners course, you will be given the opportunity to sign up for more advanced courses.
What others have to say about our organization
"I volunteered with E’rootha for five years and within that time, I had accumulated experiences that I feel would be unparalleled elsewhere. I am sincerely grateful for this opportunity."
- Crystal Ajja, Former Youth Refugee Mentoring Program Director and Chief of Staff
"I love that were giving the kids a chance to grow and have a new experience being able to interact with other kids and the volunteers. I really do think it's a great and positive thing and think it should keep going! The main thing I will always remember is seeing the kids grow more confident in themselves and open up to us as volunteers. I really appreciate the relationships that grew from this experience."
- Raiven Korkis, SNAP Camp Volunteer
"My experience with E’rootha has been nothing short of life-altering. As a founder, I have built a well-rounded understanding of the organization and its potential. The professional experience I gained through the organization is, for the most part, unmatched by my peers. I truly believe that I have worked with some of the greatest youth leaders in our community and the resulting knowledge I have acquired has helped me reach new heights."
- Ranna Abro, Former Board Member, Chief Human Resource Officer and Chief Public Affairs Officer
