Volunteer of the Month

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.

Hometown: Jenkintown, PA

How long have you been a Mighty Volunteer? Since February 2014.

What do you do at Mighty Writers? I volunteer on Tuesday afternoons with the Mighty Writers Academy.

What is your favorite thing to write now? “Fortunately… Unfortunately…” stories with my young friends at MW.

••••••••••

I have never felt more connected to my neighborhood.

••••••••••

What makes someone a Mighty Writer? A Mighty Writer enjoys language and language arts for their own sake, but also understands the power of practicing writing as a major key to personal growth and happiness, stronger communication, healthier relationships and a better career.

What keeps you coming back to Mighty Writers? I continue coming back to MW because of the sense of community and because the kids are so much fun. I have lived in South Philly over fifteen years, and I have never felt more connected to my neighborhood.
