The light of a lantern can bring hope and courage when life seems challenging. Volunteers at Presentation Lantern Center give a helping hand as tutors, board members, donors and partners. Many individuals give newcomers a friendly hand for navigating in a new culture.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
- — Become a tutor of English language learners.
- — Assist a student in preparing for the U.S. Citizenship test.
- — Assist newcomers in developing “life skills” in a new culture, such as cooking, shopping and direction-determining.
- — Celebrate with students and other volunteers at social events.
