Executive Summary

Designed to help close the achievement gap between advantaged and disadvantaged children, MuseumCorps at Providence Children's Museum provides stimulating hands-on learning experiences not available to most low-income children. Working closely with Head Start, Boys & Girls Club and other CBOs, the Museum will deploy AmeriCorps Members to provide engaging enrichment programs for inner-city children in out-of-school time and preschool in three of the state's poorest cities.
