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

  • Academic interventions, such as after-school homework programs, MCAS test prep and tutoring;
  • Supportive community that holds students to high standards;
  • Coordinated effort with the existing resources within the school system to ensure that students’ academic, social and emotional needs are met;
  • 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.

  • RFL recently partnered with Agassiz Village, Doc Wayne and the High Flight program to provide even more opportunities for our students to learn and grow in other arenas. With a big focus on leadership, personal growth and group dynamics, these three organizations all take students out of the classroom and into the great outdoors. We are very excited to provide these opportunities to our students and are thrilled to have these partnerships!

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.”
