Chelsea All 4 OneHi, my name is Chelsea and I am a new Americorps VISTA member serving through Vermont Youth Tomorrow with the All-4-One program in Springfield, Vermont. I am passionate about providing a well-rounded education for students and am really excited about the work All-4-One is doing.

All-4-One provides before and after school programs, summer camp, and weekend trips for students in the Springfield school district. In addition to serving students healthy meals, the program engages students in creative, academic, enrichment, and recreational clubs and activities. Moreover, All-4-One incorporates literary and math skills into its programs so students can hone these skills through fun, hands on learning experiences.

While I am at All-4-One, I will focus on program development- strengthening All-4-One’s curriculum building capacities and incorporating students’ school time curriculum into All-4-One’s out of school time services. Additionally, I will work to further integrate All-4-One into the Springfield community through our volunteer program and by building partnerships with community organizations.

As winter comes to a close, we are looking forward to our summer program! Summer Daze is an 8-week, 6:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. camp that runs from June 30th to August 15th. All-4-One provides students with hot breakfast and lunch, as well as an afternoon snack. This year the program will be The Game of Life themed. Morning programming will include academic enrichment in Literacy and Math, while afternoons will focus on fun enrichment activities and social time for the students.
