Enabling students to perservere, thrive and lead productive lives.

Through a unique partnership with Framingham Public Schools, Resiliency for Life (RFL) serves a high-needs population within the town of Framingham.

Resiliency for Life is a voluntary academic intervention and dropout prevention program that develops skills and confidence in students with social difficulties who are at-risk of academic failure. RFL provides:

  • Individualized Growth Plans;
  • Coordinated effort with the existing resources within the school system to ensure that students’ academic, social and emotional needs are met;
  • Academic interventions, such as after-school homework programs, MCAS test prep and tutoring;
  • Supportive community that holds students to high standards;
  • Frequent progress reports to parents and workshops to address current issues such as communicating with teens, substance abuse, sexual health, post-high school planning, financial literacy, etc.

  • Summer Retreat: In-coming 9th graders attended our summer program which ended with an over-night retreat focused on community, team-building and leadership.
  • Resiliency for Life senior Sabetha Lafontant was featured on Channel 5’s A+ segment on 5/7/14. Click the link to watch! She is a testament to how much our program and its supports can do to give students the boost they need to thrive and become, as Sabetha puts it in the segment, “the person [they] want to be.”
  • RFL is incredibly grateful for two Boston Marathon Runners from Framingham who helped raise over $7,000 for our program!
