Volunteer Spotlight: Danielle

Volunteer Spotlight: Danielle is one of our Teen Tastic leaders who has taken charge of coordinating the weekly program. She comes prepared to each program and collaborates with other leaders to create age-appropriate activities based on the themes chosen by the group. This past week was an animal theme and she modeled handwriting with the participants. Each teen was able to go up to the Promethean board and she helped them spell out each word within the squares with hand-over-hand assistance when needed. She is patient and tailors her problem-solving skills to each participant well.

Are you able to give a few hours? We would love to have you join our fantastic, impactful team of volunteers! https://gigisplayhouse.org/milwaukee/volunteer/
