CABW 025: Alessandra Desiderio

Read Show Notes
Alessandra (Aley) Desiderio is a serial entrepreneur and mom who has fought to overcome homelessness, cancer, the loss of her daughter, domestic violence, and divorce. She has dedicated her life to making an impact in the areas of family issues and security, justice, equality, education, and creating economic opportunity. As a result of her own insufficient and expensive childcare issues raising children as a single parent, Alessandra created CREW Childcare Rewards App, a technology solution to the high cost of childcare. The app pays parent users to share information about the care options in their area; draws a map of care check-ins for parents; and offers providers a marketplace where they can buy field trip vouchers, classroom supplies, and services for their center.

CABW 022: Engineering Brightness

Read Show Notes
Engineering Brightness is a FREE after-school program, started by Tracey Winey and John Howe. With volunteers, they continue to provide an environment for kids to build and work collaboratively to solve problems in order to eradicate a global problem of free access to clean light after dark, healthy indoor air quality, and access to education for youth and adults.

“Helping kids discover their power of changing the world today, using their unique talents to make a difference…Engineering Brightness was a great way to harness the power of our youth to solve global problems today. While in the Philippines, I saw that kids are the same everywhere – they have the same hopes, dreams, and desires. They just have different obstacles in front of them.” ~ Tracey Winey.

With an estimated 650 protoypes of their 3-D solar-powered lantern, John Howe talks about the importance of bringing STEM to Preston Middle School. “If kids know their work matters, you can’t stop them. We saw the application of STEM looked like ‘service’ in the community .” ~ John Howe
