I am pleased to present Expanding Opportunity: Citizen Schools Impact Report 2016. 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.
This is a perilous moment for education in our country. At the federal level, leaders are calling into question the efficacy of after school programs that support youth and threatening to limit further the public funding that fuels them. That is why it’s more important than ever to celebrate and highlight the impact we - and programs like ours - are having. We hope you will take a moment to view our results and to help us spread the word by sharing with your network.
Thank you for your partnership in this work and your continued advocacy for our students!
