Teach Something you LOVE!!!

Citizen Schools invites you to volunteer as a Citizen Teacher this Spring!
Share what you know and love with the children of Redwood City, Daly City, San Jose, or Campbell

WHO: Your own small team of 11-14 year olds all eager to learn from you!

WHAT: Teach your profession or hobby in after-school apprenticeships.

No teaching experience is necessary! Our talented staff is here to help.

All with volunteer Citizen Teachers!

Spring program runs from late February through early May.

Daly City, San Jose, and Campbell.

TRAINING: All volunteers must attend a Citizen Teacher training, which is offered at a variety of locations in the South Bay and Peninsula.
Please apply to be a volunteer online (link above) to see the training schedule.

Citizen Schools operates a national network of apprenticeship programs for middle school students, connecting adult volunteers to young people in hands-on learning projects. 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.

We currently serve 3,000 middle-school students and engage 2,400volunteers at 30 sites nationwide. But we aim for even larger impact.
Our 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.
