LEAP for Education Expands to Lynn!
Adapted to a virtual program due to COVID-19, Dream MORE is targeting English learners this summer and offers project-based learning to boost students’ writing, listening, and speaking skills.
Scheduled to start in mid-October, our fall program will include academic enrichment, education and career exploration, social emotional learning, and community connection building.
Learning Goals:
Improved English, Computer Literacy, Community Connections
“We get to interact with and interview different people - that’s my favorite part. It’s pretty cool to interview people with interesting jobs and learn about what they do!”

" After months of planning and collaboration between LEAP staff, Thurgood Marshall Middle School teachers and the community, the Dream MORE program kicked off on July 7th in a virtual format. Thirty-four English learners are learning important English language and computer literacy skills, which will prepare them for their return to school this fall. We can't wait for our students to share their experiences!"
