Systems Design VISTA, Citizen Schools
Citizen Schools is a Boston-based, national nonprofit organization that partners with public middle schools to re-imagine the learning day for children in low-income communities. At Citizen Schools, adolescents work side by side with experts to explore new fields, learn new skills, and build a foundation for their future. We partner with low-income communities that need additional support and resources and mobilize a team of AmeriCorps educators and volunteer professionals we call “Citizen Teachers” to teach apprenticeships, and provide academic support, in order to help all students discover and achieve their dreams. Citizen Schools works to close the opportunity and achievement gaps by engaging students in real world learning, effectively setting students’ sights on high school graduation and post-secondary matriculation, while building the 21st century skills, beliefs, and networks they will need to thrive in the modern economy. We have developed deep volunteer partnerships with many companies including Biogen, Cisco, Dell, Fidelity and Google that provide our students with inspiring mentors and hands-on learning opportunities across the country. Since our inception in 1995, Citizen Schools has developed a strong track record of results. Citizen Schools' students significantly outperform their peers on leading indicators of educational success and advancement, including attendance, grades, and on-time graduation from high school. Citizen Schools currently partners with 30 schools in six states, providing an additional 350+ hours annually of intensive academic and enrichment learning opportunities to nearly 5,000 students.
