Rasheed Baron comes to Wenham every weekday afternoon to "hang" with Gordon College students. He gets help with his homework, plays team games in the gym, and tries the ropes course. Rasheed is one of more than a dozen Lynn kids who benefit from a collaborative program established between the College and the Lynn Housing Authority.
Rasheed's experience is the tip of an iceberg. There are about 20 "Community Partners" -- organizations in Lynn -- that are served by the College. The many service projects are collectively called the "Lynn Initiative." As many as 400 Gordon students are involved in relationships with members of the city's multi-cultural urban population, which is over 20% foreign-born.
