Go Green

Educating for a Sustainable Future

Children Across America (CAA) is dedicated to educating children about the benefits of going green. We explore topics such as organic gardening, sustainability, renewable energy, and clean water and air programs. By partnering with local nonprofit organizations and businesses, we aim to educate the next generation on practices and technologies that can improve our planet and enhance our way of life for generations to come.

Health Initiative

Organic Gardening: Children plant seeds and tend to gardens during the summer.

Partnership with the Garden Restaurant: We collaborate to create an organic garden where children harvest herbs and vegetables used in the restaurant’s farm-to-table menu.

Collaboration with the Charles River Watershed Association: Children learn about clean water practices, the effects of runoff pollution, and the purpose of watersheds. They also get hands-on experience building a watershed.

Partnering with Homeworks Energy (part of Mass Save): We teach children about clean energy, including solar, wind, and hydro power.

Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle Program: This program educates children about landfills and how to live more sustainably.


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.

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.

What people say about us

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. Children Across America 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.
