Welcome to the Summer 2023 Winnebago Area Literacy Council Teen Peer Mentoring Program!

This program matches local teens with refugee and immigrant teens that are new to our area. Our mentoring pairs will have a variety of fun local experience opportunities provided to them in addition to the adventures they embark upon on their own. The goal is to introduce our new neighbors to the Winnebago County Area and create a support network for the upcoming 2023/2024 school year.

Our Teen Peer Mentoring Coordinator this year is Emillie Rathsack.

Emillie is a current Master of Library Science student through UW -Madison and has worked at the Oshkosh Public Library for five years, as both a Page and a Library Assistant. Emillie received her Bachelor of Arts from UW – Oshkosh. Born and raised in Oshkosh, Emillie dedicates most of her time giving back to the community that gave to her. In her free time, she likes to read, swim, craft and paint.
