Education is not a spectator sport
- Teach an apprenticeship. Lead a team of middle-school students in a ten-unit course in your field of expertise.
- 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.
- Attend a WOW! presentation. Watch apprentices argue a case or give financial advice, and make their learning authentic.
Employees, customers, and shareholders expect companies to give back. Citizen Schools is a powerful way to do so—and with meaningful results.
