The impact our volunteers have on the lives of our students is profound. Through the hard work and dedication of volunteer teachers, managers, administrators, and more, BEACON is able to help hundreds of students every year achieve milestones both big and small. From reading their first words to passing the Citizenship exam, our students and their goals range from the very beginnings of literacy to the more complex areas of job preparation, technology, personal finance, and civics.
Our volunteers work tirelessly on every aspect of our program, from instructing in the classroom to coordinating behind the scenes. No matter your experience or existing skill-sets, if you have passion for helping adult immigrants become self-sufficient and active members of their communities, there’s an opportunity for you at BEACON! With your hard work and dedication a BEACON student will obtain language proficiency, increase employability and family stability. Volunteer positions include volunteer teachers, tutors, technology facilitators, workforce presenters, resume coaches, and site managers.
