Citizen Schools California



Citizen Schools is a leading national educational initiative that uniquely mobilizes thousands of adult volunteers to help improve student achievement by teaching skill-building apprenticeships after school. Our programs blend these real-world learning projects with rigorous academic and leadership development activities, preparing students in the middle grades for success in high school, college, the workforce, and civic life. Launched in Boston in 1995, Citizen Schools has programs at 44 locations in seven states, serving an estimated 4,500 students and engaging approximately 3,200 volunteers. In California, Citizens Schools operates programs in Oakland, Redwood City, East Palo Alto, and San Jose.
