BEACON is able to offer low cost, affordable classes due to the generosity of our literacy volunteers who dedicate their time to helping the students obtain their literacy goals. Small group and one-on-one tutoring are given to adults in the Manassas area of Prince William County, Virginia. Educational specializations include English Language Learners (ELL), citizenship preparation, computer literacy, financial literacy, and integrated workforce literacy. Small group instruction is held at various community partner sites throughout the area, while one-on-one tutoring is set up to meet the specific needs of a learner.
NEW starting fall 2016 BEACON will be offering a Pre-CNA class to help high level ESOL learners connect to a career pathway as a Certified Nursing Assistant. The class will prepare students with the vocabulary and skills needed to be successful in a CNA class. (Note: our program will not offer a certificate.)
