The Community-Based Museum Program is an AmeriCorps program based at Old Sturbridge Village and designed to bring hands-on, experiential learning programs to youth in Worcester County. AmeriCorps members create and deliver fun, engaging hands-on lessons, working directly with students in after-school and community settings.

AmeriCorps Eligibility Requirements:

Old Sturbridge Village is committed to promoting diversity. We are passionate about developing and maintaining an inclusive, equitable and accessible working and learning environment for all visitors, staff and OSV community members. We believe every member on our team enriches our diversity by exposing us to different ways of understanding and engaging the world around us.

OSV’s Community Based Museum Program prohibits all forms of discrimination and harassment based on race, color, national origin, gender, age (40 and over), religion, sexual orientation, disability (mental or physical ), gender identity or expression, political affiliation, marital or parental status, pregnancy, reprisal, genetic information.  

Reasonable accommodations can be made at any time during the application process or during service. To request an accommodation, contact Human Resources Manager Demi Wrobel at [email protected].

Information for Afterschool Programs:

Our program serves elementary students across Worcester County with hands-on, experiential learning programs developed and delivered by AmeriCorps members. OSV’s program aims to increase access to enrichment activities and grow student engagement through project-based learning during out-of-school time. Our hope is to strengthen ties between the museum and the community by bringing our education programs out into the community and fostering a stronger connection between students and their local history.
