Virtually Volunteer with Citizen Schools!
Citizen Schools California
Thank you for showing interest in volunteering with Citizen Schools this semester! We are a non-profit organization who supports Middle School students through intentional programs that foster 21st Century Skills, SEL, academics and college/career pathways, all while working towards bridging the opportunity gap.
We have three virtual opportunities available for Fall semester 2020:
- Citizen Teacher: 1 hour per week teaching & 1.5 hours per week of collaborating with Citizen Schools Teacher Lead
- Breakout Room Facilitator: 1 hour per week & reviewing lessons each week
- Career Pathway Video: your own time frame
Citizen Teacher: Volunteering as a Citizen Teacher or a Breakout Room Facilitator means teaching or supporting an apprenticeship class. Apprenticeships are offered for 10 weeks, once a week for 1 hour per week, beginning the week of September 21st . The apprenticeship curriculum is developed prior to the start of the semester and focuses on 21st Century Skills, academics, social emotional learning and college/career connections. Along with a prepared curriculum, Citizen Teachers also have a Teacher Lead from Citizen Schools to partner with throughout the apprenticeship.
Breakout Room Facilitator: As a Breakout Room Facilitator, volunteers will be supporting an apprenticeship, but will not be teaching the class as a whole. Instead facilitators guide small groups of students during breakout room sessions.
Career Pathways Video: Volunteers will record a 2-3 minute video that introduces themselves, their profession and the path that led them there. These short videos are used not only within apprenticeships to inspire students, but are also posted on our website for student access.
We welcome your creativity and thought partnership on all of these opportunities and we look forward to welcoming you to the Citizen Schools community!

About Citizen Schools California

Citizen Schools envisions a world in which schools, companies and families partner to provide students with a set of real-world learning experiences that put them on a path to college and career success.
Since 1995, Citizen Schools has been providing opportunities for adolescents to work side by side with experts to explore new fields, learn new skills, and build a foundation for their future. We partner with low-income communities that need additional support and resources. Our extended learning time program supports academic achievement in core subjects like English Language Arts and Mathematics, while building important 21st Century and Social Emotional skills through real-world learning experiences. Students who participate in Citizen Schools gain an additional 3 months of learning over the course of a year and are 25% more likely to enroll in college than low income students nationally.
