Building community, together.
The Lincoln METCO Coordinating Committee, or “friends of METCO”, is a volunteer organization that supports the Lincoln METCO Program at the Lincoln School. We create opportunities for Lincoln resident and Boston resident students and caregivers to build authentic and lasting relationships and an equitable exchange of welcoming experiences in both Boston and Lincoln. We’ve offered events like historical tours of Boston, science and nature enrichment activities, snow tubing and bowling, to name a few. Additionally, we charter buses so that Boston and Lincoln children can “Stay and Play” after school in each other’s neighborhoods and fund scholarships for Lincoln Parks & Rec summer camp. Finally, we support the teachers, school, families, caregivers, and community in its Anti-racism, Inclusion, Diversity and Equity (AIDE) work.
A strong, anti-racist community.
Our vision is to support building a strong, anti-racist community in which students and families with different life experiences feel a deep sense of inclusion and belonging and recognize, accept, and celebrate each other’s differences. We also support the Lincoln METCO program by activating caregivers to help attain its goals and priorities.
