GoKids Boston

Empowering Kids to Grow Up Healthy

Opportunities for UMass Boston Students

GoKids Boston serves as an on-campus "lab" for a variety of UMass Boston students. Many students from the College of Nursing and Health Sciences have become involved at GoKids in a variety of functions including:

  • research assistants
  • interns
  • as part of classes
  • as part of independent study credit hours
  • volunteers

All students who would like to work at GoKids must complete a “GoCert,” a certification process that certifies students to be competent in running/using equipment, understanding policies and procedures, and accurately taking various assessments on children. Students cannot work at GoKids with children unless they have completed and passed the GoCert written and practical exams.

Also, all students must be immunized, have CPR/AED certification and completed CORI forms.

Students must also complete the online student registration.
