Shortly after Alondra Valle came from Mexico to Green Bay, she found a place that would help provide valuable skills in her transition.
“Literacy Green Bay gave me many opportunities to function effectively in the community,” she said.
At Literacy Green Bay, Valle learned language and reading skills. They are skills some of us may take for granted, but leaders at the nonprofit said the coronavirus pandemic has emphasized the importance of having them.
Valle is continuing to work with a tutor. She attends college at UW-Green Bay, has a full-time job, and passed her citizenship test. Now, she has a dream to help others.
“I hope to find a job in Green Bay as a bilingual professor,” she said.
