Volunteer of the Week

Adult - Lea Neveau resized.jpg

Lea Neveau is our volunteer of the week!

The Women’s Empowerment Center at the YWCA assists women in our community from all walks of life through their Madison Street Boutique, the Women’s Career Closet, and free workshops that offer job/career development, self-confidence improvement, and life and health skills. One of the services is providing low-resourced women with professional apparel at no cost, which is essential for those seeking employment or who are newly employed. In more than three years of service, Lea has given over 1,000 volunteer hours, including two days a week ironing donated clothing. She even has taken home items that need a little extra love in the form of washing or mending. She takes pride in the fact that women can shop the Women’s Career Closet with dignity and select quality pieces for their job or interviews.

Lea often shares the impact volunteering has had on her own life, which motivates others to get involved. The YWCA has gained a few new volunteers just by Lea discussing her gratification and the absolute joy she has experienced in supporting other women. Not only has she affected her peers and women in the community with her service and kind acts, but she has truly birthed a family of servant leaders. All her children now volunteer their time in some capacity with the YWCA. Lea truly leaves a lasting impression on other volunteers, staff, and clients, and she encourages us to all be the best versions of ourselves in supporting and going the extra mile for others. Thank you, Lea, for your heart of compassion and caring!

Reading Coach Volunteers

It only takes an hour a week to make a difference to a child. Research shows that third graders who have proficient reading skills are nearly five times more likely to graduate high school than their peers who do not; yet in many of our area schools, over 70% of third graders test below proficient for on-track readiness in English Language Arts. Reading Coaches for Kids is a volunteer tutoring program designed to increase students’ reading abilities and academic success. Dedicated, caring volunteers provide consistency and educational support by reading individually with students. This is done during the school day in K-5 classrooms or after school programs throughout Brown County, helping students improve their reading skills. Reading Coaches are currently volunteering in person in the Green Bay school district (though with the unpredictability of COVID status, this can always change). Masks are required for all students, staff, and visitors in all Green Bay district buildings. Shifts: various times during the school day. Minimum age: 18. Click here for more information and an application.
