For over 25 years, Citizen Schools has been a pioneer in educational equity.
Since opportunity, unlike talent, is not equally distributed, we have provided hands-on learning experiences that ignite curiosity, build confidence and expand horizons for over 50,000 underrepresented middle school students. Together with our partners, including 25,000 career mentors, we have exposed students to ideas and connections, helping them access even better opportunities than previous generations.
Today, we engage underserved students in hands-on learning, in school and after school. Our students are creators and problem-solvers, not just consumers. They become scientists, artists, mathematicians, engineers, writers and programmers. We also apply best practices from our direct service work to systems-level advancement of STEM mentorship and learning by working with communities.
Together we are transforming education in school, after school and across communities.
