Volunteer Opportunity description

We are all experts in something; in our careers, in the lab, on the basketball court, in the garden, or in the kitchen. At Citizen Schools, middle school students work side-by-side with experts like you to explore new fields, learn new skills, and create something real for their community!

Citizen Teachers are volunteers who teach middle-school students in low-income communities new skills and expose them to new futures. For ten weeks, volunteers work with a group of 15 students for 90 minutes each week. Volunteers receive up-front training, weekly lesson-plan assistance, and are paired with a trained staff member for on-going in-class support!

Volunteer Today!Citizen Schools runs programs at school sites in Boston and Chelsea. We are currently seeking volunteers to work with students with Autism in our Dorchester school. Citizen Schools has a whole library of curriculum you can choose from, or they will work with you to design your own. Check out some great ideas for[[about:blank|what to teach]]!
