Are you passionate about helping underpriviledged children get the best education and preventative healthcare possible? Put you skill set to work and help us give every child the tools they need to be the best they can be!

Children Across America is currently seeking volunteers to help with fundraisers during a few weeknights and Saturdays. This could be anything from a night at 5 Guys promoting our programs to diners to manning our tables at a Saturday children's fair. Not every program is a fundraiser, some we just are trying to promote our free programs for kids.

Children Across America is a 501C3 children's nonprofit providing free preventative healthcare and educational programs focusing on literacy to children in need and whose families cannot afford them. We have STREAM Clubs, homework clubs, book clubs, reading groups, tutoring, anti bullying and self esteem building classes, we sign children up for Mass Health and SNAP, we have a clothing and toy closet and many more community services.

We are a 100% volunteer organization. Students welcome, we can also do unpaid internships or you can get your public service credits working with us. We are a Presidential Volunteer Service Award organization, anyone who puts in a minimum of 100 hours will be submitted for this award,

A child who reads becomes an adult who thinks!

Retired, semi retired, mothers, housewives, students, teachers we need you too. Company groups are always welcome. Give some of your time and skills to help needy children in your community. Please call us at 508-933-8915 or check out our website www.childrenacrossamerica.org and follow us on facebook https://www.facebook.com/childrenacrossamerica/.
