Citizen Schools - Webinar

Wed, November 14, 2012

Citizen Schools partners with public middle schools in low income communities by adding three hours to the end of the school day, giving students access to three major curricula: hands-on, engaging academic lessons that reinforce learning from the traditional school day, a robust college access and readiness program that focuses on what students need to do right now to make college an option for them, and our signature program element, apprenticeships. Apprenticeships are semester-long hands-on learning projects taught by volunteer professionals from the community, exploring whatever topic they are passionate about, from law to spoken word poetry to robotics.

The National Teaching Fellowship is a two year service, leadership and professional development opportunity to serve in a high need, low income middle school while developing essential skills for a successful career. Teaching Fellows teach in the expanded day, work to support the Citizen Schools program, and engage deeply in the communities we serve. Teaching Fellows get to do a lot more than teach. They are also a connector for our students - communicating with families, first shift teachers, administrators, volunteers, and peers - all to inspire kids to make the connection between education and future opportunities.
