Volunteer of the Month

June 6th, 2014

Julia Thompson-Calio

Employer: Baker Tilly Virchow Krause (accounting)

Hometown: Harrisburg, PA

How long have you been a MW volunteer? Since July 2013

How would you define your role at MW? My primary role is as a mentor to Sunny, a senior at Constitution High, though I’ve also assisted with college application and creative writing workshops.


“MW is a bustling hub of creative energy and motivated young people.”


What skills are necessary for a Mighty volunteer? All you need is a strong desire to see a young person succeed. MW’s staff provides volunteers with any additional resources they may need.

What makes someone a Mighty Writer? My mentee, Sunny, cares deeply about the world around her and incorporates her passions–from protesting school budget cuts to her love for Jimmy Fallon–into her writing.

If you could put a Mighty Writers anywhere, where would it be? Every neighborhood in Philly needs a Mighty Writers.
