At Citizen Schools, middle school students work side-by-side with experts to explore new fields, learn new skills, and create something real for their community! Citizen Teachers are volunteers who teach middle-school students in low-income communities new skills and expose them to new futures. For ten weeks, volunteers work with a group of 15 students for 90 minutes each week. Volunteers receive up-front training, weekly lesson-plan assistance, and are paired with a trained staff member for on-going in-class support!
Citizen Schools runs programs at school sites in Boston and Chelsea. Citizen Schools has a whole library of curriculum you can choose from, or they will work with you to design your own.
