Brickett Elementary School

At the end of the school day, volunteers from The REAL Program walk to the Brickett School in Lynn to meet the REAL students who walk with us to 17 Atlantic Street.

The Brickett School does not have physical space for a gym, a library,  and play/climbing structures or green space outdoors. More than half of the children do not have any kind of early childhood education before they enter the Brickett School. More than half of the children live in homes where English is not their primary spoken language. 


We are proud to make a REAL difference in the lives of these Brickett School children.
