About

Citizen Schools seeks committed volunteers to join us in Boston Public Schools to teach STEM-related classes!

Citizen Schools brings volunteers to middle schools to teach hundreds of relevant subjects--and launch new dreams.

At Citizen Schools, middle-school students work side by side with experts to explore new fields, learn new skills, and create something real for their community.

Once a week during school hours, volunteer Citizen Teachers partner with middle schools in underserved communities to teach apprenticeships in a wide range of subjects. Teams and individuals from corporations, civic organizations, universities, and associations lead courses about things they're passionate about, exposing young people to new futures through ten weekly lessons.

Each curriculum is designed to make academic and 21st Century standards connect to careers and real life. Choose from topics like financial literacy, computer and website coding, forensics, invention, 3D Printing, math mysteries, robotics, allied health sciences, and more!

Independent studies show that Citizen Schools apprentices get better grades, have better attendance, and graduate at a higher rate than their peers--and that volunteers gain professional skills like teamwork, communication, project management, and leadership. (And they appreciate their employers for the opportunity to give back!)

Citizen Schools calls all citizens: go teach!
