At Citizen Schools, we envision a world in which schools, companies, and families partner to provide students with real-world learning experiences that put them on a path to college and career success. We are thankful for our growing group of service-minded volunteer partners who are passionate about closing the opportunity gap. Fostering relationships with non-profits and universities allows Citizen Schools to provide our students with a diverse group of caring and supportive mentors. This year for the first time, Citizen Schools New York hosted a Partnership Guest Week in late April.
In our year one report on our teacher support model, Catalyst, we share lessons learned from our initial design year and the ways those lessons informed our year two approach. This approach includes a new volunteer experience design team, comprising a group of volunteers from Citizen Schools National Leadership Partner, Dell.
