Jan Plourde the executive director of The REAL Program in Lynn recently visited our club.
The REAL Program, a non-profit which works to address literacy issues by providing books, homework assistance, healthy snacks and dinners, enrichment opportunities, college campus visits and just plain healthy fun to children in a safe, caring environment (plus English language tutoring for their parents!)
The REAL Program’s activities are made possible through a service-learning model designed to provide meaningful volunteer opportunities for retired teachers and professionals and quality service-learning opportunities for high school and college students. Through the collaborative efforts of many individuals, The REAL Program is making a difference in the lives of children.
