MutualOne helps teens with $10,000 grant to Resiliency for Life

The MutualOne Charitable Foundation recently awarded $10,000 to Resiliency for Life, to help provide academic and social support services to at-risk students at Framingham High School.

A voluntary drop-out prevention program that works to help struggling teens develop academic and social skills and confidence, Resiliency for Life works to redirect students who are at risk of failing and dropping out of school and guide them toward more productive lives. The Foundation’s recent grant brings the amount awarded to Resiliency for Life to $72,500 over the past five years.

“It is rewarding to realize that, with our support, more than 350 students have benefitted from this program over the past few years,” said Mark R. Haranas, president and CEO of MutualOne Bank and a member of the Foundation board.

“Many of these students were the first generation in their families to go to college, and that is an accomplishment everyone in the community can be proud of,” Haranas added.
