The REAL Program has suspended collecting children's books, face-to-face ESL classes for adults and the Before Home tutoring services for children until this world understands and can contain the Corona Virus. Plans to meet virtually are being discussed to continue our support in these unprecedented times.
An even higher level of cleaning and disinfecting will be taking place at our facilities.
All REAL gatherings, including the REAL Brunch in Saugus are postponed indefinitely.
BE WELL, EVERYONE!
The REAL (Reading and Educational Assistance for Learning) Program's mission is to improve literacy in Lynn, MA—a city 100,000 people call home.
What is Service Learning?
Service Learning is a Guiding Principle of The REAL Program. It is a teaching method that combines academic instruction, meaningful service, and critical reflective thinking to enhance learning and civic responsibility.
Our REAL Goals:
To distribute free, gently used books to the children in the greater Lynn area. To create a sustainable program that strengthens and supports children, families and teachers by improving literacy, providing experiential learning and supporting self sufficiency.
