How can you make an impact on education in New York City? Sign up for an information session to learn more about volunteering to teach middle school students an “apprenticeship,” or semester-long hands on learning project.
What is Citizen Schools?
Citizen Schools is an education nonprofit that partners with public middle schools in under-served New York City communities to expand the learning day. We do this by providing hands-on and relevant lessons for students they may not experience during regular school hours.
What is Citizen Schools’ mission?
Our mission is to engage young people with real-world opportunities in their learning experience and make sure they are supported and motivated to succeed.
How does Citizen Schools work?
We bring volunteer professionals into the classroom to teach their knowledge and expertise through project-based apprenticeships. When students are able to learn from authentic professionals, like you, they can start to make connections between what they are learning in school and the real world.
How do apprenticeships work?
Apprenticeships are 10 week volunteer-led classes that take place once a week from 4:15-5:40 pm. The final student showcase at the end of the apprenticeship, called the “WOW!,” allows students the opportunity to share what they’ve learned and accomplished throughout the semester.
