My Y Story...

Amy Carstens

There are people in our community who see a problem and fix it. Amy Carstens is one of those people. Throughout her many volunteer roles, Amy has worked tirelessly to make Green Bay a better place. As a long-time Y volunteer, Amy has worn many hats. Beginning when Amy lived in Wausau, she volunteered at the Y to teach step aerobics. When she moved to Green Bay, Amy immediately looked to volunteer at the Green Bay Y. In her words, “The Y shouldn’t recognize people. People should recognize the Y for all the work and benefits they provide to the community.” Her daughter has grownup in the Y’s gymnastics program and during the past twelve years, Amy has volunteered to sell concessions, organize events, help at meets, and has served as the president and vice-president of the parents’ club. She even designed and edits the gymnastics team’s website. In her numerous rolls, Amy frequently saw that despite financial support from the Y, many families still struggled with the cost of the program. She did not want the cost to deter families from participating. Drawing on her experience as the volunteer President of the Green Bay Youth Hockey team, Amy proposed and implemented the Scrip Fundraising program for the competitive gymnastics team at the Y. For the past year and a half, Amy has acted as the Y’s Scrip Coordinator. In the beginning, Amy spent at least 100 volunteer hours setting up the program. In her words, Amy now has “Scrip down to a science.” Due to its success, this year the Swim Team also implemented the program, and Amy is coordinating Scrip for both the teams. Amy volunteers to set a good example. She believes that people too often only invest in themselves, but as a society we need to invest in work that benefits one another.
