Mission Statement

We mobilize a second shift of afternoon educators, who provide academic support, leadership development, and "apprenticeships" --hands-on projects taught by volunteers from business and civic organizations. At Citizen Schools, students develop the skills they need to succeed in high school, college, the workforce, and civic life.

Description

Citizen Schools is a national non-profit organization serving low-income middle-school students after school, extending the number of hours spent in an active learning environment. A core program element is the project-based student apprenticeship. Each semester, generous volunteers get trained to become Citizen Teachers who lead these hands-on apprenticeships on a topic of their choosing, and about which they are both passionate and knowledgeable.

By connecting adult volunteers to young people in real-world learning projects after school, students develop the academic and leadership skills they need to do well in school, get into college, and become leaders in their careers and in their communities.
