Project Description

Volunteers play an important role at COA, and we would like to recognize the outstanding contributions of Kim Wynn as a volunteer with our pre-teen program. Kim Wynn works at Whyte Hirschboeck Dudek S.C., and is a member of the United Way Women’s Leadership Council. She first learned about COA when the Council volunteered with the girls at our Goldin Center last March. They read excerpts from books written by notable women, and discussed important topics like goals, image, careers and schooling.

After that first experience, Kim decided to become an ongoing volunteer for COA. She’s been working with the girls in our Pre-Teen Youth Development Program since April, and has even started a cooking program with them. “I’m finding the girls to be a delight to work with,” Kim said, “They are enjoying trying new foods and new cooking techniques, and it’s fun to see when they realize what they can accomplish in the kitchen.”

COA’s Goldin Center is located within Amani, one of Milwaukee’s most distressed neighborhoods, serving primarily low-income families who have access to very few support services. Kim has become a positive female role model for these girls, and they appreciate her fun personality and dedication to COA: “She makes Fridays fun and I come on Fridays because of Ms. Kim.”

Thank you Kim for your dedicated service to youth at the Goldin Center!
