Empowering Children Through Education

Children Across America is dedicated to organizing educational programs for kids, supported by our sponsors and partners. Our motto? "A child who reads becomes an adult who thinks®." We assist children in grades K-5 in developing reading and math skills through free, enjoyable, and interactive programs held throughout the year. These programs inspire kids to read more, even outside of school, and help them discover the practical use of numbers in everyday life.

What people say about us

My son was failing second grade. He was getting Ds and Fs in reading and math as English is not our first language. I took him to Children Across America's Summer STREAM Club and he loved it. He started understanding English and math while having fun. The new school year, he is getting Bs in both subjects and is no longer in ELL. Now he wants to be a teacher. Thank you so much for all you did and you never asked me for anything. You changed my sons life.

What people say about us

I am a 1st grade teacher in town and I know when a kid has been in your Summer program. They are prepared for school and way ahead of the rest of the kids. It's also very helpful that they have a new backpack with the supplies they need to start the year.

I have served as the Operations Manager for Children Across America since November 2011. The organization remains true to its mission; all services are 100% volunteer-driven, and the passion exhibited toward helping children and families is tangible. CAA is dedicated to building literacy, promoting healthy eating habits, and raising awareness of preventative health measures. We turn our backs on no one and treat the Blackstone Valley community as family because that’s how it should be.

What people say about us

Children Across America has helped hundreds of children struggling in school to develop their English skills and improve their test grades. Their services are free, and the kids seem to enjoy the process. The staff is wonderful and very good with the children. As a parent, I appreciate their "Safe Harbor" policy, which requires at least two adults to supervise each child. This gives me peace of mind, knowing that the children's safety is their foremost concern.
