In communities where Citizen Schools operates, children are caught in a vicious cycle of declining educational and economic opportunity. Among communities we serve, 50% or more of the low-income children who enter public high schools do not graduate. This project will teach educationally at-risk students technology and communications skills that will help propel them toward high school completion, advancement to college and full participation in the civic and economic life of their communities.
Technology apprenticeships allow students to work alongside real-world experts (volunteer “Citizen Teachers”) to develop new technological skills. Courses culminate in public celebrations of learning where students teach back to their communities.
Citizen Schools aims to change the life trajectories of low-income, low-achieving students and propel them toward success in school, college graduation, career opportunities and civic leadership. We also aim to strengthen the after-school sector.
