Mission Statement

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.

Elmhurst Community Prep

Grounded in our Four Theories of Action--high expectations, collaboration, positive school culture, family involvement--and a commitment to Social Justice, the ECP Family works to ensure all students promote to high school on a positive life trajectory and prepared for rigorous A-G coursework.

Description

We connect middle school students with the real world and their future career pathways, in partnership with public middle schools in urban communities.

What makes us special is our apprenticeship model--semester-long projects that turn kids into young scientists, architects, lawyers, business owners, or cooks that are taught by volunteers, like you, we call Citizen Teachers.

Every student we work with gains the skills, access and beliefs that equip them for a great future.
