The value of those who take the time to volunteer with Third Way Center is immeasurable. Our volunteers contribute to the organization in many ways. From tending to our greenhouse and gardens and assisting with the maintenance and repairs needed at our treatment homes to mentoring our teens, volunteers help to make the lives of our youth bright and better on a daily basis.
This month, we spotlight a volunteer who supports Third Way Center as Co-Founder and Co-Chair of the Young Professionals Board: Denver native Winter Wall. Winter first became affiliated with Third Way Center as an intern while earning her Bachelor’s degree in International Affairs, Gender Studies and Communication at the University of Denver. She recalls that she learned a great deal about the “programming, commitment, and tenacity of Third Way,” which is what lead her to eventually return as a volunteer.
Outside of her work with Third Way Center, Winter loves being outdoors, travelling and cooking. She earned her Master’s Degree in International Development and Humanitarian Affairs, and co-founded W3 Global Consulting, LLC. In her role there, she focuses on bringing together non-governmental organizations and the for profit sector to propel development and increase sustainable impact in third world countries.
Winter has worked and lived in Uganda, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, India, China, Nepal, Thailand, Indonesia, El Salvador, Myanmar, Guatemala, and Nicaragua. These experiences sparked her desire to volunteer and serve her local community.
When asked about her goals pertaining to her work with the Third Way Center, Winter explains that it is her hope “that the Young Professionals Board will create a new generation of Third Way supporters, encouragers and champions.”
We are grateful for Winter’s commitment to helping our teens, her work with the Young Professionals Board and her on-going support of the Third Way Center.
