AMIGOS Mentoring Program

Family Services’ Amigos program provides mentoring for Lawrence youth ages 11-15 who, at the time of enrollment, attend the Guilmette, Arlington or the RISE Academy. Mentors and mentees meet 3-4 times a month and spend 1.5 - 2 hours together each time. Training, support, quarterly events, and incentives are provided to participants. The goal of the program is to prevent gang involvement by providing youth with an adult role model who forms a consistent and positive relationship with their youth mentee.

Engineering Outreach Program at MIT

Saturday Engineering Enrichment and Discovery (SEED) Academy is a five and a half year academic enrichment and career exploration program for public school students from Boston, Cambridge and Lawrence, Massachusetts who have a strong academic record and interest in science and engineering.

Each SEED Academy module focuses on a different technical discipline – from mechanical engineering to robotics to biological engineering.
