Literacy Green Bay would like to sincerely thank Carol Lee Haen & her family for their generous donation. Carol Lee passed away in May and put us, along with several other non-profits, in her will to receive a portion of her estate. She had a soft spot in her heart for immigrants who are learning English, as well as all those who are working to improve their literacy. She had also helped her neighbors to prepare for US Citizenship. Carol Lee was close to the Vollrath family, of which Andrea Vollrath was one of Literacy Green Bay's founders. Her passion for adult literacy will continue to be carried out with her legacy gift!

A HUGE thank you to Titletown Dental for their generous donation of an AED to Literacy Green Bay! Not only did they stop by to drop it off for us, but they also took a tour of our facility and learned more about our programs! THANK YOU!

‼️We were so excited to be able to donate our second AED to Literacy Green Bay earlier this week!‼️

They help adults and families in our community learn how to speak, read and write English. They currently are helping educate people from 47 different countries speaking 17 different languages!

If you are looking for a good cause to donate to or volunteer with, we'd highly recommend them as they rely on donations and volunteers to keep their operations up and running!

To Literacy Green Bay, thank you for providing such a valuable service to our community, it was a pleasure to visit. And as we always say, we sincerely hope you never ever use this, but we're glad it's there just in case.

Special thank yous to Kevin Leurquin with StaplesAdvantage for helping us get the AED, Dave Liethen with N-Tech Consulting for specifically helping us connect with Literacy Green Bay and to Greater Green Bay Chamber for many of these connections!

What is an Event Bundle Sponsor?
Businesses have the opportunity to sponsor one of our three annual fundraising events, or they can bundle all three events together and become an Event Bundle Sponsor, which helps Literacy Green Bay fund programs that help adult learners acquire the skills they need as parents, workers, and community members!
Over the next few weeks, we will be highlighting each Event Bundle Sponsor!

Why America Fails Adults Who Struggle to Read

Check out this interesting article about the struggles with adult literacy in the US. Articles like this remind us all why Literacy Green Bay and our programs are so important!

"In other wealthy countries, adults with limited education who were born into families with little history of schooling are twice as likely to surpass their parents’ literacy skills. Here, one’s destiny is uniquely entrenched. Though nationwide graduation rates have risen in recent decades, the number of adults who struggle to read remains stubbornly high: 48 million, or 23%."

The nation’s approach to adult education has so far neglected to connect the millions of people struggling to read with the programs set up to help them.

We are truly grateful to receive funding from the Equitable Recovery Grant Program. These funds will benefit literacy agencies that are empowering adult learners and strengthening communities across the state. We will explore new ways to help adults build digital literacy skills, which are now so critical for access to health services, employment and quality of life.

Congratulations to our literacy agency members who also received grants - Literacy Green Bay, Literacy Network, , and Omega School!

Kathy Rohde is our Volunteer of the Week and the runner-up for the 2021 WPS Volunteer Awards Education Award!

Literacy Green Bay is a non-profit organization whose mission is to help adults and families acquire the reading, writing, math, English language, computer and workforce skills needed to prosper as individuals and community members. Kathy has been a valuable team member helping Literacy live out this mission. She first became involved with them in 2015 as a member of the board of directors. Shortly after, she realized that by becoming a volunteer adult tutor, she could gain a deeper understanding of the programs, opportunities, and challenges facing the organization.

In 2017, Kathy’s spirit of leadership led her to the role of president of the board of directors, which she carried out for three years while also continuing her tutoring. She also volunteers at the Literacy office, assisting with tasks such as mailings, data mining, and updating citizenship curriculum. Most recently, she became a student evaluator for the organization, where she administers and proctors tests for adult learners.

We thank Kathy for her spirit of volunteerism, positive attitude, and compassion for all of the learners that are a part of Literacy Green Bay!
