LEAP @ Marshall Middle School (Lynn)
The Marshall Middle School and LEAP have partnered to implement a free after-school program for 60 students in Lynn in grades 6 – 8 starting in the Spring of 2020. This program will be offered right in the school and will include a free snack and transportation home for those who need it.
This program will offer academic enrichment, college and career exploration and opportunities for students to develop socially and emotionally and to build community connections. Special programs will also be offered to English Learners to accelerate their acquisition of English and prepare them for high school. Teachers and community organizations interested in offering programs in the schools as part of this program are encouraged to participate.
This was made possible through a Wellington Catalyst gift awarded to LEAP for Education in December, 2019.
This program will be funded through the Catalyst gift and the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Access to Quality Afterschool and Summer grant funding.
