Dear Friend,

In honor of National Volunteer Week, we are saluting our Wily volunteers! 

On behalf of everyone at the Wily Network, I want to personally thank all of the amazing volunteers who support Wily Scholars. Whether you have hosted an Intro to Wily event, chaired or participated in a care package event, served as a gift giver or networker for a Wily Scholar, or provided in-kind professional services, I would like you to know how much we appreciate your time and dedication to the Wily program.

In light of the COVID-19 emergency, our primary focus is the safety and well-being of our students as they complete their academic studies and seek employment and internships for the summer. Even with all of the uncertainty and unpredictability in our world today, I am inspired by the resilience, ingenuity and grace of the Wily Scholars. 

We value all of your contributions as volunteers and look forward to collaborating with you in person again soon. In the meantime, look below for ways to volunteer from the safety of your home - we would love to engage with you during this difficult time. 

Your ongoing commitment ensures Wily’s ability to fulfill our mission to provide a critical safety net for Scholars as they navigate college independently, through clinical coaching, financial assistance, community-building support, and networking opportunities. Wily Scholars, coaches and staff are so grateful for your support. Thank you for being Wily!  

Stay well,
Judi Alperin King
Founder and Executive Director
