All children deserve the opportunity to discover and achieve their dreams. Citizen Schools makes this possible for thousands of high-need middle school students nationwide through partnerships with public districts that extend the school day and introduce volunteer and paid adults to increase hands-on learning opportunities. It’s an evidence-based model, in operation at 32 schools in seven states, that consistently accelerates the rate of student learning, reduces absenteeism, leads to more students reaching grade-level proficiency, and prepares students for college and beyond. You can review our results at http://bit.ly/CSresults13 or see the our impact first hand through the story of one of our students.
We are on a mission to reimagine the learning day, and with partners like Bank of America, Google, Cognizant, Fidelity, we are getting closer to closing the opportunity and achievement gaps every day.
