- Host an exploration to your office. Invite students over for an afternoon.
- Serve as an expert panelist at a WOW!. Teach for an evening by giving feedback to students finishing their apprenticeships.

Employees, customers, and shareholders expect companies to give back. Citizen Schools is a powerful way to do so—and with meaningful results.
