Lynn Community Enrichment Program was founded in 2015 as a way to utilize the amazing resources available to Greater Lynn residents contained in Lynn Vocational Technical Institute. The 3 buildings in the heart of Lynn, Massachusetts contain hidden treasures that teach Lynn children five days a week and can do so much more for adults after the kids go home. We have industrial shops, a gym, a swimming pool, complete kitchen facilities, exercise areas, classrooms, audio-visual facilities, computer labs and so much more that taxpayers have provided to area residents. We have fantastic teachers from the Lynn Public Schools and from various industries around the area ready to share their knowledge and expertise with adults.
The program was founded in cooperation between the New Lynn Coalition, a coalition of community groups eager to open up community schooling for all residents, and the Lynn Public Schools. We have received outside funding from a developer helping us keep our costs low, but all the tuition charged for classes goes to recruit teachers and supply materials for courses in some cases. This is a non-profit venture designed to be affordable and fun and to offer a variety of skills and enrichment activities to our adult base.
