Seeking Educators and AmeriCorps Members in Massachusetts!

We're recruiting host locations (elementary school classrooms, after-school programs, or youth-focused community organizations) in underserved communities in Massachusetts to implement the Connect Science (CS) Curriculum. Starting in March 2024, grade 3-5 students in the program will explore the topics of energy and natural resources, teaching science through service learning, with a focus on social-emotional learning (SEL). Interested in being a host location? Contact gnavarrete@compact.org

Each Connect Science location will be paired with an AmeriCorps member to support implementation of the program. These minimum-time AmeriCorps members will serve a 300-hour service term. Depending on location, they will serve as a teaching assistant or as the CCAC Connect Science Trainer.
