What our Volunteers are saying:
I love the interaction among the participants. I love to hear them say to their classmates, “You taught me something new.”
WiNGS members were able to bond by the 3rd class and I didn’t have to do ice breakers – they started the morning by sharing what they had applied/learned from prior classes with other members. It felt good to see them connecting with eachother and me being a ‘facilitator’ to that.
Join us in our work.
Volunteers make WiNGS work. Our volunteers share their time, passion and expertise to help our members and staff achieve success. Volunteers change lives!
