Family & Community Learning

At KIPP MA, we form a close partnership with families and the communities in which we work to help all our students reach their full potential.  We believe that we are teaching in the community, not just in our classrooms.  We are committed to empowering our families and communities with the training and resources necessary to live a life of choice.

Serving Our Community

Our Family and Community Learning program offers ongoing classes to the parents of our KIPPsters, families and community members living in or near Lynn and Mattapan.  We offer English as a Second Language, Citizenship, Computer Literacy classes, Financial Literacy, parenting workshops, book clubs, as well as community social gatherings, such as potlucks or movie screenings.  Last year we launched a new Civic Engagement Series in Boston where City Councilors and Massachusetts Education Leaders spoke to participants about How to Run for Office, How to Serve on a Board of Directors, How to Advocate for Your Child’s Education and How to be more Engaged in Your Local Community.  We currently have over 300 adults enrolled in our Lynn program, and over 150 enrolled in Boston with many on the waiting list.  Refer to each KIPP school’s google calendar to learn more about upcoming classes and events for families.
