Mission Statement

What Will You Teach?

Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for low-income children across the country. Since 1995, students at Citizen Schools have developed the academic and leadership skills they need to succeed in high school, college, the workplace, and civic life.

At 44 campuses in seven states, serving 3,800 students and engaging 3,200 volunteers, we mobilize a second shift of afternoon educators, who provide academic support, leadership development, and apprenticeships: hands-on projects taught by volunteer experts. Citizen Schools is at the forefront of a movement to educate children, strengthen communities, and increase access to the American Dream.

Description

Volunteer for Citizen Schools

Since 1995, thousands of citizens just like you have been sharing what they know and love with middle school students by teaching apprenticeships with Citizen Schools. These are Citizen Teachers.

Why be a Citizen Teacher? Citizen Teachers expose students to worlds of learning they've never encountered.

As a Citizen Teacher, you will...

· Develop and lead a hands-on learning project in your field of expertise

· Lead a small team of middle school students once a week for 11 weeks

· Help students create a real product, performance, or presentation -- what we call a WOW!

All with the close support of a Citizen Schools trained educator!
