See what it means to be an AmeriCorps member at Providence Children's Museum.


The mission of the AmeriCorps program at Providence Children's Museum is to instill a lifetime love of learning in children – especially those whose exposure to rich educational experiences is limited. Across the country AmeriCorps members are getting things done through service in exchange for help in financing their educations.

The Museum AmeriCorps team is group of dynamic and diverse individuals who, in conjunction with Museum staff, develop and lead after-school Learning Clubs at inner-city community centers; design and implement programs with Head Start preschools; and recruit and mentor volunteers who facilitate play and learning in the Museum’s hands-on exhibits.

Members have a strong commitment to hands-on learning and experience and/or training in child development. In return for their year of service, members receive benefits including living allowance, health insurance, childcare allowances, an educational grant and more.

For more information about the Museum's AmeriCorps information sessions, contact Nicole Rawlinson or (401) 273-5437 ext. 144.
