Volunteers

The light of a lantern can bring hope and courage when life seems  challenging. Volunteers at Presentation Lantern Center give a helping hand as tutors, board members, donors and partners. Many individuals give newcomers a friendly hand for navigating in a new culture.

OUTSTANDING SERVICE AWARD

To honor our volunteers, we established the Outstanding Service Award in 2009. Each year this award is presented to one or more individuals at the annual Appreciation Dinner in December.
