Children Across America, a 501c3 children's educational non profit located in Milford, MA, is looking for 2 new Board members to help us to grow to continue providing free services to underserved kids. Board members lend their business experience and help fundraise to grow the organization. We are looking for people that have a passion for helping kids and who will be actively involved in the organization.
Most of our kids are first generation Americans and minorities who do not have access to the same resources other kids may have. We are trying to even the playing field and give these kids the same opportunity at a great education and a successful life as everyone else. We call it Educational Equity. We also have our Girls Love to Code Club, which is for young girls 4-9, to learn to block code, program and build VEX robotics. These girls increase their reading and math skills 3 fold on average by participating.
Children Across America provides educational programming(STEM and STREAM), preventative healthcare, healthy lifestyles and coding to America's under served children. We provide educational equity. The Milford office deals with residents of Milford and the surrounding towns of Blackstone Valley although we will never turn a child away no matter where they live. Our newest location is in Avon/Brockton and next year we will open Dorchester, Randolph and Canton. It is almost 100% volunteer organization and all of our services are provided free of charge.
Must attend at least 75% of in person board meetings. We meet the first Monday of every month in Milford, MA.
Utilize your contacts to help grow the organization and further our mission of helping children.
Must raise at least $5K every year. This can be done by personal donations, running company fundraisers, in kind donations from companies, etc.. This is not hard to do and is easily achievable if you believe in our cause. I got Staples to donate over $50K of school supplies every year just by talking with them.
Children Across America - A child who reads becomes an adult who thinks.
