Inspire Children With What You Know
We are all experts: in our careers, in the lab, or in the garden. As a Citizen Teacher, you will share your expertise with middle-school students in low-income communities and expose them to new opportunities for the future.
These apprenticeships transform lives, inspire careers and restore children’s zest for learning.
Teach What You Love
Citizen Teachers turn their knowledge into a ten-week apprenticeship. We make that very simple.
Help Every Step of the Way
Whether it’s developing lesson plans, working with middle-school students or just finding a sympathetic ear, you’ll be supported from start to finish in your apprenticeship.
- A Citizen Schools staff partner with you in every class
- Training on how to make your course engaging and keep young teens on task
- A community website with helpful resources and online lesson planning.
