Share your passion with middle school youth. Become a Citizen Teacher!

By popsi | July 28, 2011

Citizen Schools is a national nonprofit that partners with middle schools to expand the learning day and increase opportunities for low-income children. We are currently recruiting 10,000 scientists, engineers and STEM enthusiasts in Massachusetts and across the country to lead 12-week hands-on apprenticeship courses that build students’ skills and fuel their imaginations.  Volunteers would work with a group of 15 students for 90 minutes each week, with a trained staff member to support you in the classroom at one of our Boston, Revere or New Bedford schools. We have curriculum for you to choose from, or we’d work with you to design your own.  To learn more and sign up, visit or contact Stacey Harris.

We want your mind, passion and expertise in the classroom one afternoon a week.  What will you teach?

See what Hector St. Hilaire of Verizon, with his apprentice “roboticists” thought of his apprenticeship this year.
“Spots are currently filling up for the fall semester so reach out soon to seize your opportunity to teach this fall”
