On June 3, Carol will suit-up for our first-ever spinning event, Cyced for Citizen Schools, to help raise funds for Citizen Schools programming in New York City. We recently caught up with her to hear why she’s excited about the event - and how Citizen Schools has affected her.
In the past year, our programming has continued to demonstrate measurable impact in academic growth and achievement, helping to narrow the opportunity gap in our schools. This report includes key national and regional results, as well as introductions to just a few of the many supporters, volunteers and Americorps members who help make it possible for middle schoolers across the country to discover and achieve their dreams.
We think our AmeriCorps Teaching Fellows and our VISTAs are the best! We celebrated our AmeriCorps members and the work they do all week long... Click to see more photos and videos from AmeriCorps Week!
Having attended NYC public schools throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I was able to experience a wide variety of schools across different communities within the boroughs of Queens and Brooklyn. My middle school years were some of my toughest years. At the time, there were many changes going on within my personal life that negatively affected my behavior toward my grades and schoolwork. In part, I owe my decision to become an AmeriCorps Teaching Fellow to my middle school guidance counselor who continuously pushed me to grow.
