Cambridge Community Center (CCC)
5 Callender St., Cambridge, MA 02138
Head down Mass. Ave. to Central Square. Take a LEFT onto Western Avenue, which then bends right. (Note: if you were to take a right, the street would be Prospect - they are really the same street, just different names depending on which way you turn.) Take a RIGHT onto Howard and take your first LEFT onto Callender Street. CCC will be on your right hand side. (Look for the orange slide.)
ReachOut Tutor Supply Grants
Do you have a cool idea or project you'd like to do with your ReachOut student? Something educational, yet fun for both you and your student? Instead of having to pull money out of your own pocket, you can apply for a grant to fund the materials! Examples: Making a necklace out of lettered beads or making a board game.
Step 1: Read and complete the application
Step 2: Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and await approval from the ReachOut staff. All requests will be approved within 5 business days.
Step 3: Once your proposal is approved, print out a copy of the MIT Tax-Exempt Form, purchase your materials (tax-exempt, of course), and submit your receipts with a signed Request for Reimbursement Form to ReachOut, MIT Public Service Center, 4-104.
