Members and Partner Organizations

The NRRC’s collaborative work is only possible with the help of regional institutions of higher education (IHEs), regional preK-12 schools and community-based organizations (CBOs).

The following list includes the NRRC’s advisory board, IHEs, regional K-12 schools, and CBOs currently supporting NRRC work. Each of these organizations provides educational, health, social, and/or artistic activities and services to children and young adults in Northeast Massachusetts. By partnering with these organizations, the NRRC seeks to improve teaching and learning, as well as identify new approaches for meeting children’s needs in and out of school.
