Want to do something rewarding? Volunteer in REAL life... we have lots of ideas how!

The REAL Program exists because we have so many amazing volunteers who keep returning to volunteer and support our families. 

Volunteers come from all over the North Shore and range in ages from 14 to 74. From professionals and retirees looking to work with children or spend time giving to the community, to high school and college students looking for service-learning opportunities, we have a place for everyone who is willing to commit to helping REAL families. 

Please fill out our volunteer application to learn more about how we can work together to help children and families improve their literacy skills!

The REAL (Reading and Educational Assistance for Learning) Program's mission is to improve literacy in Lynn, Massachusetts.

The REAL Program is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.
