Benedictine Educational Assistance Community Outreach to Neighbors (BEACON), a literacy program for adults, began in 1992. BEACON works primarily to meet the educational needs of adults in Prince William County, e.g. English as a second language (ESL) and Citizenship. Trained volunteers work with individuals and small groups at our partners’ sites throughout Prince William County, Virginia.
BEACON also provides life-skills workshops on topics such as health and safety, nutrition, financial literacy, parenting skills, and community resources.
