Learning by doing. . . Getting things done.
AmeriCorps at the Providence Children's Museum
AmeriCorps members at the Providence Children's Museum expand the Museum's mission to inspire and celebrate learning through active play and exploration out into the community, developing and providing activities for children and families who might not otherwise have access to the crucial learning opportunities that happen here and making connections between the Museum and the surrounding cities. The Museum has hosted an AmeriCorps program since 1997 and is one of the only National Service programs in a museum setting.
The central program that our full-time AmeriCorps members support is our STEAM Team project, which runs STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) afterschool programs in partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Providence and Pawtucket. Members also support our Head Start programming, serve as Museum Educators out in our Museum, run play-based programming in community settings, and participate in extensive trainings. In return for their service, members receive a modest living allowance and are eligible for an education award upon completion of the program. The AmeriCorps program at PCM is a full-time program requiring members to be in service 40 hours per week.
