PBHA's Partners Empowering Neighborhoods

Purpose Statement

PEN volunteers teach English as a Second Language, Computer Skills, and GED math and English to adults living in public housing developments in Boston and Cambridge. Previous teaching experience is not necessary; most classes are taught by two teachers each. The minimal time commitment for one class is two hours per week (including teaching, preparation, transportation, and program meetings). Volunteers are certainly welcome to teach more than once a week. PEN also runs a summer program with the same goals and objectives. Time commitment is 30 hours a week. For more information, please contact Danny Mou (dannymou@fas), David Porter (dporter@fas), Daniel Pavan (dpayan@fas) or Winmar Way (way@fas).
