Benson Area Refugee Task Force (BART)

Shannon Linehan ~ (703)244-1143 ~ BensonRefugeeTF@gmail.com
www.BensonRefugeetf.com

The Benson Area Refugee Task Force, BART, is a group of volunteers from Benson who works with refugees. We provide Citizenship, Computer, Health, and English Classes to Refugees. We also watch the children of our adult students during class. Furthermore, we have drives throughout the year, and several Clothing Closets for refugee families. We are always trying to think of new ways to help the refugee communities succeed. Since we are entirely volunteer based, we need volunteers for everything that we do.
Knowledge of Karen, Kachin, Nepali, or Burmese languages would be incredibly helpful.

Colleges Against Cancer (CAC) is a nationwide collaboration of college students, faculty, and staff dedicated to eliminating cancer by working to implement the programs and mission of the American Cancer Society. With hundreds of chapters nationwide, CAC is showing the world that young people care and want to make a difference.

How many college organizations do you know that involve the entire campus community and surrounding area? CAC does just that through four Strategic Directions: Advocacy, Cancer Education, Relay For Life, and Survivorship. By working to advance the mission of the American Cancer Society, the Strategic Directions are areas in which college students are easily engaged.
