Congratulations to Lex on earning her GED!

This fulfilling volunteer opportunity places you face to face with homeless students in the Camas/Washougal area who are struggling with their coursework in the K-12 system. Students all around the state of Washington continue to struggle with online learning throughout COVID-19, but students who are without a home and the basic necessities to succeed are facing an even greater challenge.

In the course of 3 months, we have helped our students become more confident in their studies and improve their overall grades dramatically. While we do focus a lot on academia, we also put forth an effort to mentor our students and help them grow not only as students, but as individuals as they proceed through these challenging times. Grades are important, but in many cases, life skills are just as necessary.

We would love to have you on our team of dedicated volunteers and help these kids achieve their goals and future their dreams. When these kids meet someone that believes in them, their whole world view changes and they blossom in front of our very eyes. If you have any questions, please contact Shalana Marshall, Tutoring Coordinator for PAX Learning Center.

Mission Statement

PAX Learning Center was created by a group of dedicated educators and community members who see an increasing need to help those who dropped out of high school and are struggling day to day to survive. We at PAX are dedicated to assisting individuals who have not completed their requirements to attain a high school diploma in the Vancouver Metro area. We seek to provide academic and job skills training to these individuals in order for them to have the opportunity to walk their preferred path, whether it be higher education or a career.

Description

PAX Learning Center is a 501 c(3) nonprofit organization that aims to assist individuals who are in the lower socioeconomic tier and help them get onto their preferred path, whether that be higher education or a career. PAX is a newly established organization and is looking to grow within the Vancouver community. Currently, PAX offers tutoring services to a number of partnerships within the community to help people attain their GED. As we continue to grow, we look to host a number of programs which will include classes for GED preparation as well as career building and internship programs. In tandem with tutoring, we are also looking for volunteers who would be interested in helping the PAX Development team with different projects such as fundraising events, grant writing, marketing, and more. If you are a student looking for an opportunity to hone your craft or have a co-op requirement for a class in either of these categories, please reach out to us! We are happy to have anybody on our team who seeks to help this population, they really need our help.
