CHANGE A LIFE THIS SCHOOL YEAR!
During the school year kids need extra support to do well in school. Adult volunteers are needed from 3:30-5:30 Monday through Thursday and Saturday mornings 8:45-12:00 to help with homework and enrichment activities. Help out once a week, twice a month, whatever works!
“Working with Angel at Beacon Place has been such an amazing experience. I am continually amazed at his eagerness to learn and willingness to work so hard! I feel like every day I am there I get back more than I give!” Kevin, adult volunteer since 2016
