Children Across America, a 501c3 non profit located in Milford, MA, has available openings for volunteer interns for 2021/2022 school year and summer. This opportunity would include office work, research but primarily working our Summer STREAM Club both in house and distance learning via Google classroom. Full training provided.

Children Across America provides educational programming(STEM) to America's under served children. 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. It is a 100% volunteer organization and all of our services are provided free of charge.

Our Summer STREAM Club, which is STEM which we have added reading and arts, was created to help with summer learning loss in low income families. Now that COVID 19 has severely impacted our school year, this program becomes even MORE crucial to help these children be ready for the next grade level in the fall. The impact on our children 4-9 year olds is massive.

Club operates M-F 930-1230 in July and August, Saturdays are 10-12 during the school year and is optional. We are also introducing a coding club just for young girls. STEM for young girls is crucial, especially in the minority community. We also work with Minecraft and robotics for the young ones, technology aptitude is critical for these kids and strengthens their math and reading skills. CORI check is required for all volunteers.
