Literacy Green Bay provides opportunities for the community to grow. During my undergraduate at UW - Green Bay, I was able to spend a summer as an intern in an ESL classroom. I was able to have one on one time with students and I was even given the opportunity to teach a few classes. This internship helped me achieve my minor in linguistics/TESOL and gain experiences I could not have had anywhere else. Literacy Green Bay gives so much back to Green Bay and I am proud to have been able to work with the great staff and a wonderful organization.

Literacy Green Bay is a wonderful place to volunteer. Staff is very supportive and training program is fun and very informative. I am not a teacher, but I speak and read English so I can teach that. It is a job that gives back 100 times. Clients in classes and in 1:1 tutoring. are so appreciative, and it is fun and gratifying to see success in their adaptation to life in the U.S. I have been especially rewarded as students I am working with get their citizenship. Literacy Green Bay is very important in our community and everyone is welcome!

I have been a tutor for about 20 years at Literacy Green Bay. Having not been a teacher, I was unsure of my value to students initially. However, the friendships with students from many different countries and the support of the staff have made me feel of value in this volunteer opportunity. I am always happy to share my experiences with others in the hope they may want to experience what I have. Literacy Green Bay, its staff and volunteers provides a valuable contribution to the community.

I volunteer twice a week tutoring a literacy student. I take great join and pleasure in helping this man improve his writing and reading skills. We are currently working toward his obtaining his driver's license and I am excited for the opportunities that this will afford him. I find this volunteer experience extremely rewarding.

As a long-term volunteer, I have seen the very important change that improved literacy makes. Parents get better jobs, children achieve more in school, a family can realize a bigger dream. Our clients are served with energy by learner-focused teachers and tutors. It’s an amazing program and it’s my great privilege to participate.

I've been a tutor at Literacy Green Bay for close to two years, and currently work with two students who have very different learning needs. It's been rewarding to help them work on achieving their goals. They are appreciative and determined, and understand the importance of reading/writing/etc. on their daily lives.

I currently serve on the board of directors for Literacy Green Bay and no other organization in the area has a great impact in achieving it's mission to help someone better their lives through adult literacy. The stories that are told from it's students on how their lives have changed as a result of attending classes at Literacy Green Bay are inspiring and in today's political climate, it is very refreshing to hear such success in achieving the American Dream!

I joined the Board of Directors for Literacy Green Bay in 2017. During my time with the organization, I have been continually impressed by the commitment of the team and all of our volunteers in advancing the mission of creating a community literate in the English language in Green Bay, WI. Even more so, I am truly moved by the dedication our English Language learners display on their pursuit of personal improvement through language courses, continuing education, and/or citizenship. By being part of this organization, you can feel the difference you are making.

Awesome organization! First handedly went to one of their fundraiser events where I got to witness what they do for our community. This place is needed! Wow! Such transformation in people's lives.

I'm particular with what organizations I support. After touring and learning more about what Literacy Green Bay has done, continues to do, and has plans to do for the community - I was completely impressed. So impressed, in fact, that I joined the Board of Directors to be a part of mission and vision.

Literacy GB is assisting our company in becoming a more diverse company. They have provided us guidance and completed an assessment to help us with our language needs. They made it a point to learn as much about our business and industry as they could to provide the right amount of guidance. We are extremely pleased with the services that they have and continue to offer for us.
