I first became involved with Milwaukee Achiever more than 10 years ago as a volunteer tutor. I worked with many wonderful learners who shared their life experiences with me as they mastered their English skills. Milwaukee Achiever is one of those wonderful organizations that visibly improves the life of others and that compelled me to continue doing more. Since that beginning, I have volunteered computer services and have been a board member for a few years.

A big reason for my ongoing support of Milwaukee Achiever is the impact it has on people's lives. Learners come to the organization with a desire to improve their lives. Milwaukee Achiever connects those learners with trained volunteer tutors and uses its proven methods to dramatically improve their literacy skills. I am a bit of a numbers person and the success numbers from Milwaukee Achiever compare favorably with other organizations.

There is an impact beyond just the numbers though. The quality of life in my community is improved when every person is able to contribute in a meaningful way. The skills learned at Milwaukee Achiever help many persons make a more meaningful contribution to the community.
