At Citizen Schools, we envision a world in which schools, companies and families partner to provide students with a set of real-world learning experiences that put them on a path to college and career success. Here at CSNY, we are lucky to have volunteers representing so many different fields each semester. From an introduction to neuroscience with Columbia University, to a public speaking master class with a Googler, we couldn’t do what we do without our amazing CTs! CSNY recognizes the hard work and dedicated service of our volunteers through the NYC Mayoral Service Awards.
Corey Cronin of Novato has received the President’s Volunteer Service Award for work as a “citizen teacher” with the national nonprofit Citizen Schools.
The group partners with middle schools to provide academic support to children in low-income communities, in conjunction with AmeriCorps educators and the volunteer teachers.
Cronin was a silver award honoree, which recognizes volunteers who have taught three of the past four semesters. Across the country, 83 volunteers were recognized in this category.
