Did you know? For over 25 years the Council has contracted for around-town transportation on a BusyBee van…they went out of business and so did our community van…but…it is back! Thanks to two partnerships; with the Charles River YMCA & the Needham Council on Aging, we can once again offer residents rides around town.
The Y van is currently available on Wednesdays between 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. This van is not handicapped accessible; independent mobility is required.
The Council on Aging van is handicapped accessible….schedule has not yet been determined, but will be announced soon.
Reservations Required; 24 hours in advance, by phone call only at 781-444-2415
The Needham Community Council announces the Spring English as a 2nd Language [ESL] tutor training is scheduled to begin on Tuesday, February 27th. This free training session runs for 6 consecutive Tuesday nights from 7-9 p.m. Participants are expected to attend all 6 sessions to complete the training.
No experience or foreign language skills are required; just a genuine interest in helping a Needham-based adult improve their English.
After completion of the training, tutors will be matched one-on-one with students from our wait list and asked for a commitment of one hour per week for at least 9 months. Support is available from experienced tutors throughout the process.
