Beacon Center

TEL HI was chosen to manage North Beach-Chinatown (NBC) Beacon Center, located at Francisco Middle School. NBC Beacon is one of eight Beacon centers around San Francisco. So…you might be thinking, what’s a Beacon Center?

From the San Francisco Beacon Initiative:

The Beacon Centers transform public schools into youth and family centers that become a beacon of activity for the surrounding neighborhood. Drawing on the existing wealth in our communities, Beacon Centers create pathways to lifelong learning through which young people and adults can always find the next challenge or step in their process of learning, growth, and development….

Managing North Beach-Chinatown Beacon Center gives TEL HI a way to reach even more people who may need our services. We are delighted by this chance to serve a larger community.
