LightHouse Holyoke is an innovative educational program for teens choosing to pursue a personalized approach to their education. Guided by an advisor, LightHouse teens develop their own goals and learn at their own pace in a supportive, bilingual community. Teens have the opportunity to pursue learning through classes, individual tutorials, independent studies, volunteer work in the community, and through their own natural exploration and inquiry.

Our program is successful in large part because of our college work-study students. We’d love for you to join us.

Most work-study staff work with individual students.  Some also teach classes. Some spend a morning, an entire day, or multiple days. We will talk with you about what you’d like to offer and find the ideal way for you to engage with our program.

If you are interested in applying for a workstudy position, please complete the form below. If you don’t hear back within a few days, feel free to get in touch with Catherine Gobron at [email protected]
