Volunteer of the Week
Victoria (Vicki) Black is our Volunteer of the Week!

Victoria (Vicki) Black is a committed community volunteer that volunteers for several community organizations, including the Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes, Current Young Professionals, House of Hope, and others like the Baird Creek Preservation Foundation and the Friends of the Brown County Library. Vicki exemplifies what it is to be a volunteer. She is passionate, effective, focused, community-minded, generous, committed, and willing to give her time and talents freely where they are needed.

Vicki is a troop leader for two troops in Green Bay as a volunteer member of the Girl Scouts. While organizing and running these two troops, she works directly with over 25 girls in Kindergarten through 4th grade. This is no small feat! Girl Scouts of the Northwestern Great Lakes builds girls of courage, confidence, and character who make the world a better place. The Girl Scouts' mission relies on the spirit, engagement, and commitment of volunteer leaders, like Vicki. Vicki helps give their girls the traditional Girl Scouts experience, organizing and leading meetings, working through badges, journeys, and awards. Most importantly, Vicki gives the girls a safe, welcoming space to learn, try, fail, grow, and build strong relationships.

Vicki also volunteers her time to make the Green Bay area a better place for young professionals. She is an active member of the Community Partnerships Committee, which is a leadership team in charge of promoting volunteerism and 'give back' opportunities for young professionals through the Current Young Professionals network (a program of the Greater Green Bay Chamber of Commerce). Vicki joined the committee in September of 2018. Since then, she has been an integral part of many different events and projects. For example, Vicki has been a key committee member in fostering the SOUP (Support of Urban Projects) program, which is a signature initiative of Current and helps bring light and funding to worthy causes and necessary projects that can better our community. Vicki has been the captain of the SOUP task force until just recently, and took on the role to organize, plan and implement this event. Vicki has been, and continues to be, a valuable and dedicated Community Partnerships Committee member.

Vicki also volunteers with House of Hope, which provides emergency shelter and supportive services to pregnant and parent youth ages 17-24 and their children. Through her volunteer work, Vicki helps to provide services that directly affect clients and serves on event and fundraising committees that help to ensure the financial capability of House of Hope. She also helps to build community awareness about the programs and services offered by House of Hope. Thanks in no small part to Vicki's efforts, hundreds of young parents and children experiencing homelessness can know what it is to have a home.

While these are just a few examples of Vicki's volunteer efforts, it is evident that Vicki is committed to seeing her community be successful. Those that have been lucky enough to work with and volunteer alongside her know Vicki to be kind, hardworking, and tirelessly committed to the community. If there is ever a need, Vicki is always willing to engage for the better of the community, regardless of what needs to be done. Vicki has a giving spirit of volunteerism. One way she embodies this is through the time and energy she puts in. Another way is by giving a boost in the mood during a meeting, or just a word of encouragement that helps those around her feel energized and motivated to pull off an event or idea. She also gets other volunteers to step up and help when needed. Vicki is proud of her community and Green Bay is lucky to have someone like her.

Thank you, Vicki, for giving your all to the causes in which you are involved!
