The Wily Network Practice Highlight: National Research Collaborative for Foster Alumni and Higher Education Newsletter
The National Research Collaborative for Foster Alumni and Higher Education published two interviews in their October 2020 newsletter: one with Wily’s Founder and Executive Director Judi Alperin King, and one with Wily Scholars Chantel and Mathieu.
“Wily has done so much for me, even though I’ve only been a member for just over a year. They have been there at my lowest and highest moments,” says Mathieu. Mathieu and Chantel discuss how they got involved with Wily, their experience with the organization, and their vision for its future.
Judi, Chantel and Mathieu also reflect on Wily’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Chantel explains, “with COVID, they had us leaving our dorms within a week. If the Wily Network wasn’t calling our institutions and speaking with people pretty high up every single day for that week, we would have been kicked out and had nowhere to go.”
