Citizen Schools operates a national network of apprenticeship programs for middle school students, connecting adult volunteers to young people in hands-on learning projects after school. At Citizen Schools, 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.
They currently run programs at 37 locations in six states, serving an estimated 3,800 students and engaging 2,800 volunteers. Citizen Schools program is a model of how out-of-school time can be a powerful opportunity to re-imagine learning, bring communities together, and increase access to the American Dream. Through unique volunteer engagement, staffing strategies, program models, and advocacy, Citizen Schools is at the forefront of a movement to transform education by encouraging students to explore the learning opportunities in their own communities and beyond.
In 2008, the newest Citizen Schools campuses launch in New York City and they are seeking volunteers from different fields of expertise.
