Service Partnerships


The Lawrence Math and Science Partnership

Middle school students in Lawrence, Mass. are building their skills in science and math and receiving homework help from Merrimack College students.

The program helps to connect middle schools to future life choices, such as college and career options. Participants, both male and female, learn that science and math are important and engaging. The program fosters pride in their accomplishments and provides positive role models for middle schoolers as they work closely with college students.
