Hola, happy volunteer appreciation week!
As we grow our network, I do not want to lose sight of our volunteers.
If it weren't for our volunteers, we wouldn't have been able to grow our efforts to build this digital network for Midwest Mujeres, a multicultural group of women from different backgrounds who are united to closing the wage gap.
Left to Right: Shadayra Kilfoy Flores, local Activist, and Organizer; Lucero Steele, MS MFT, Marce Ixta Olascuaga, Younique Beauty Consultant; and Veronica Figueroa Velez, Executive Director of Dane Arts Mural Arts.
We love that our volunteers are growing their networks! Lucero recently started her private practice. www.mmhservices.net, we caught up with her and asked her what she enjoyed about volunteering with us!
"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Midwest Mujeres in two different capacities. One of the most rewarding ones was volunteering on their Facebook page by providing mental health tips on Fridays both in English and Spanish.
In addition, I have also done a podcast and Facebook live show discussing different subjects that are important and very valuable to myself and others. It has been a pleasure working with Midwest Mujeres!"
