As the school year comes to a close, Citizen Schools is eager to stay connected to Citizen Teacher alumni and to create a community where they can interact and share their experiences. Fidelity Investments has joined in this effort and will host a focus group of twenty-five Citizen Teachers from Massachusetts in their “Think Space” on July 25th. Through discussions, attendees will establish their goals for a Citizen Teacher alumni community. This will be followed by an alumni mixer where a larger group will come together to mingle and continue the conversation.
This initiative is just one more in a string of successful events resulting from Citizen Schools’ longstanding relationship with Fidelity, our Lead National Partner for 8th Grade Academy. Fidelity also hosts annual 6 Degrees student networking events across the country, as well as our Executive Briefing. Nearly 700 Fidelity employees throughout the United States have donated 6,500 hours of their time to teach apprenticeships and prepare our students for success.
