About Us

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 three 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.

WEL A Holistic Approach To Wellness
Yonerkey Sanchez
Wednesdays 6 PM until 8 PM Main Building
  Wellness stretches beyond exercise and dieting.There are other factors that one must consider when thinking of reaching optimal wellness. For instance, understanding our circadian rhythms, (which affect many important aspects of our lives, such as our sleep/wake cycles, hormone balance, and metabolism) can help us to properly reach our wellness goals.

We understand that what we eat is as important as when we eat, but do we fully comprehend how many other factors have to be addressed when thinking of leading a holistic life.

Furthermore, the cook ware we use to prepare and store food, the chemicals we put in and on our bodies, our cleaning and laundry detergents, our hygiene and mental state, are all important and we must address them properly, when starting a new health journey.
