We are mindful of the fact that learning must be rooted in a particular place and context and that as Christians, the greatest commandment is to love God and our neighbor. Local outreach is an integral part of the learning experience and student life at Gordon and there are opportunities for this to happen both within the classroom and outside of it. All of these local opportunities are offered through the Office of Community Engagement.
Outreach Teams are groups of students leading their peers in volunteer service and ministry. These co-curricular opportunities are available throughout the entire North Shore and Greater Boston area.
College Bound is an education/enrichment program for children from Lynn's Curwin Circle, a subsidized housing development. Gordon students tutor and mentor children from kindergarten through middle school. College Bound partners with the national federal work-study program, America Reads, and is administered through the Office of Community Engagement and Student Employment.
