National Volunteer Week Spotlight 2019: Esther Cortez

April 8, 2019

This week, April 7-13, is National Volunteer Week! Each day we’ll be sharing about the wonderful volunteers who make our work possible.

Today’s volunteer in the spotlight is Esther Cortez! Esther is committed to supporting the Youth in Action (YA!) Program and CLUES in so many ways! She not only is an amazing mentor but also has been key in connecting Land O’Lakes’ Amigos group with CLUES. In addition to that, she organizes groups of volunteers for CLUES events, helps lead corporate visits for the YA! students connect us with funding and is an amazing role model for our students.

Here’s what Esther had to say about what CLUES means to her: “CLUES represents my family, the people in my life that have worked so hard so that I could have a successful future. They focus not just on developing the Latino community, but also on being the support that some may not have. Latino power will drive the American economy in the years to come, and I want to help in developing our Latino leaders and growing our community together!”

Thank you for all you do, Esther! Stay tuned throughout the week for more volunteer spotlights.
