Literacy Green Bay is looking for a slew of items necessary for reopening, as well as a volunteer to donate materials and/or make plexiglass separators to use in our tutoring areas to keep tutors and learners safe as they start in-person tutoring.

We are saddened by the news that Sister Jeanne Jarvis, one of our dedicated tutors for over 25 years, has recently passed away. She generously gave financial support as well as much of her time to Literacy Green Bay learners, so much so that we were honored to dedicate one of our tutoring rooms, the Sisters Study Hall, to her and her fellow Sister, Sister Carlotta. We send our condolences to Sister Jeanne’s religious community at St. Francis of the Holy Cross and all of her friends and family at this time. We treasure the joyful memories of Sister Jeanne!

So proud of Loan and grateful for Sandy’s help! Can’t wait to celebrate with them tomorrow!

Celebrate with us April 29th literacy heroes like, Loan Vo, the Literacy Learner of the Year.

She was an accountant in Vietnam who came to the United States 17 years ago. When she arrived, Loan did not have the English skills necessary to continue her career here.

With the help of her tutor Sandy and Literacy Green Bay, she transformed her life.

In celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Week, we are spotlighting groups of volunteers at Literacy Green Bay each day. Today, we are spotlighting our Volunteer Adult Tutors.

This group of volunteers includes Adult Tutors for ELL, ABE, Math, and Computer Skills and our Citizenship Tutors. These groups of volunteers helps students with individualized guidance.

Our Adult Tutors are required to complete 12 hours of training before being matched with an adult learner. They develop lesson plans based on assigned curriculum and come up with lessons for supplemental instruction. They commit to meet with their student for a year. However, many of these volunteers end up meeting with there students for years and years helping them achieve long term goals of receiving their GED, getting into college courses, or getting a new job or promotion.

Our Citizenship Tutors assist students who have upcoming citizenship interviews by helping them study for the civics test as well as helping them prepare for the English speaking, reading, and writing portion of the test. (Some even volunteer to conduct mock interviews!)

Thank you to all our Adult Tutor Volunteers!

In celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Week, we are spotlighting groups of volunteers at Literacy Green Bay each day. Today, we are spotlighting our Office Volunteers and Childcare Volunteers.

Our reliable group of office volunteers assist with a huge range of tasks. From filing and entering data to creating supplemental packets and producing flyers for our office and special events. (They have also been known to fill in at the front desk!)

Our Childcare Volunteers provide parents with the opportunity to attend class or tutoring without having to arrange for a babysitter or daycare. Our childcare volunteers are patient, reliable, and attentive to children's individual needs, and without these volunteers, many parents would not have the opportunity to attend classes. (And the children love them too!)

In celebration of Volunteer Appreciation Week, we are spotlighting different groups of volunteers at Literacy Green Bay each day. Today, we are spotlighting our volunteer Student Evaluators and Tutor Trainers.

Student Evaluators administer pre-tests and placement tests to new students, and they meet with new students on an individual basis to determine what their goals are and how they can best be helped by a tutor. Tutors need this information so they know where to start with their learners. In addition, Evaluators administer post-tests to current students so staff can let their tutors know how students are doing and any areas for improvement. The tutoring program at Literacy Green Bay could not run as smoothly as it does without our 7 volunteer Student Evaluators.

Just becoming a Tutor Trainer is a challenge! Our 3 current tutor trainers met the requirement of tutoring with Literacy Green Bay for one year, then completing additional training and professional development to receive Trainer certification from our national affiliate. This training usually takes 1 – 1 ½ years to complete. The trainers even have to pass an exam to receive their certification! Our organization is amazed that we even get volunteers willing to go through the process, and we are extraordinarily grateful to our 3 current volunteer Tutor Trainers!

Consider participating in our Book Cover Recreation Challenge that we posted about last week and nominating a Tutor Trainer or Student Evaluator for a free audiobook! Email [email protected] with your submission.

Today we are highlighting one of our dedicated board members, Michael Fox.

Michael, who works as a supply chain planner at Schreiber Foods, became interested in Literacy Green Bay after taking a communicative disorders course at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It sparked a desire to make a difference in the local community for those who may need some assistance in communicating. Literacy Green Bay, an organization that focuses on helping community members express themselves with English and learn other life skills, seemed like the perfect fit for Michael.

“I have the ability to make a great contribution," he says. “[This is] my first professional out-of-college involvement with an organization. I’ve really enjoyed the personal development that being on [Literacy Green Bay’s] board brings.”

In his spare time, Michael enjoys all kinds of music and even plays several instruments, including piano, trumpet, guitar and French horn.

Interested in becoming a volunteer for Literacy Green Bay? Contact Mary Safranski at [email protected] or call (920) 435-2474 ext. 102.
