Citizen Schools

Citizen Schools

Since its founding in Boston in 1995, Citizen Schools has been re-imagining the learning day to bring more time, more talented adults, and more relevant learning experiences to middle-school students in low-income neighborhoods. We provide:

  • Extended learning time for middle-school students in 18 cities coast to coast
  • Hands-on learning taught by AmeriCorps educators and volunteer experts from all fields, from science to law to finance and community service
  • Deep partnerships to help transform schools
  • A fulfilling volunteer experience that allows ordinary people to make a real difference for children

By getting citizens off the sidelines and into schools each year, we’re closing the achievement gap and increasing access to the American Dream.

The information above can be found on the official website of Citizen Schools. For more details about the organization and to find out how you can volunteer, please visit their website:
