Peek Inside the Program

The REAL Program provides books, homework assistance, healthy snacks and dinners, enrichment opportunities, college campus visits and just plain healthy fun.


Our volunteers come from all over the region and they range in ages from 16 to 75.   What we all share is a commitment to children and learning.  


We meet for 10 weeks in the fall; 10 weeks in the winter/spring and 7 weeks in the summer for a total of 108 hours that children receive care, instruction and commitment to learning.


The REAL Program currently works at the Congregation Ahabat Sholom at 151 Ocean Street.

2019 Update:

We have now collected and distributed over 125,000 children's books and placed over 40 bookshelves or little free libraries in Lynn!

Look at all the fun we have!
