VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH: June 2019
Young Ladies Aspiring Greatness
All over town!
Young Ladies Aspiring Greatness LIVE UNITED by “working hard to make a better community for our peers” as they take part in volunteering throughout the area. United Way of the Greater Dayton Area is proud to recognize them as our Community Volunteers of the Month.
In February 2013, Shirelle Stroud felt there was a need to educate young African American women about community involvement, as “not everyone had folks who were involved.” Having two daughters, and “always having kids around,” Young Ladies Aspiring Greatness (YLAG) was born. Now here first group of twelve graduating seniors has logged over 3000 (!) volunteer hours. Meetings (which frequently feature community leaders addressing the group) and volunteer events all take place monthly. “When they succeed, I feel great!” says Shirelle. “Once involved, the girls stay a part of the village!”
“The whole community loves them, not just me,” she says.
Board member and parent Tiffany Brown says “Shirelle is an inspiration and the girls love her!”
