In 1994, Sister Nora Brick and Ed & Ann Griffin joined efforts and founded Project Light to teach English to adult speakers of other languages in our community. They felt that competency in English would equip the students with the confidence and skills necessary to fully participate as productive members of our community.
Founded on the principles of access, equality, dignity, and opportunity for all, Project Light continues to carry out its mission.
Our student population is diverse, representing Mexico; Central and South America; Haiti and the Caribbean.
We at Project Light see clearly the positive impact we have on our students. We see their smiling faces and joy when they get their first job... are better able to communicate with their children's teachers and help them with homework... are able to advocate for their families' health needs.
In addition our students are great advocates of our program as they become role models for their peers.
