February Volunteer of the Month
Ella Stromme began volunteering last Fall in our basketball programs. Since then she has been a
valuable part of our volunteer team by helping out at special Y events such as Jingle
Bell Run and Daddy Daughter Dance and distributing program flyers to local
businesses. You can say hi to her next time you see her volunteering in Childwatch.
I’m a junior at Northfield High School. I am on the varsity basketball team. I am a youth
basketball coach through community services. I am a part of four school groups: Life of
an Athlete, RALIE, LINK, and National Honors Society. I enjoy hanging out with family
Why did you decide to volunteer here at the Northfield YMCA?
The reason I volunteered was for national honors society, and I just wanted to be more
active in the community. I thought that the Y would be a good place to get to know new
people and make new friendships.
What is your most memorable volunteer experience?
My most memorable moment at the Y was when I helped out with the Fall basketball
camp. The kids were all so intrigued to learn and play which was fun to see because I
am a basketball player myself.
