Mission Statement

Educating children, strengthening communities.

At Citizen Schools we work to help all children discover and achieve their dreams.

Description

Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children in low-income communities across the country.

By drawing thousands more citizens into schools each year, we’re promoting student achievement, transforming schools, and re-imagining education in America.

Citizen Schools is currently in 32 campuses in seven states, serving 4.500 students and engaging 4,000 volunteers, we mobilize a team 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.
