through the neighborhood center for allston brighton community
We have programs and resources available to the Allston Brighton community. We encourage you to utilize our services.
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Program
If your agency offers, or would like to offer free English classes to the public, we can provide qualified instructors to work onsite. Volunteers are trained to teach conversational English and teach one to two hours per week. Please contact us for more information.
If you are a resident of the Allston-Brighton community and are seeking English classes for yourself, we have classes available at the Neighborhood Center. Please fill out the ESOL Class/Tutor Request Form.
Service Day Program
Our volunteers will travel to your agency's site to assist with service projects. You may request large or small groups of volunteers. Past projects have included: park beautification, church, school and public housing clean-ups, food distribution, nursing home visits, working with youth and more. We ask site supervisors to provide refreshments for the students. Please contact us for more information.
If your agency/school works with elementary through high school students, or if you have a child of your own, and your child or children needs tutoring, we provide volunteer tutors to assist your child/children in various subjects for one to two hours per week after school. Parents fill out our Tutor Request Form. Agencies or schools please refer families to fill out our Tutor Request Form (will be available Fall 2013).
We offer posting space in our Brighton office for local events. A conference room is also available for community meetings. Throughout the academic year we have limited tickets available for selected BC athletic games and performances. Please contact us for more information.
