Time Commitment

A few hours per week

Duration

Short-Term (few weeks/months)


Do you have a passion or expertise you would like to share with young people? Have you wondered what it would be like to be a teacher? As a volunteer with Citizen Schools you can share your interests with middle school students at McKinley Institute of Technology (MIT), a public school in the Rewood City School District, at 400 Duane Street; Redwood City, CA 94062 or one of Citizen Schools' other partner schools in San Jose or Oakland. No previous teaching experience required.


The program takes place on the school campus, for 1.5 hours after school one day a week for just 10 weeks. You will work with students on a project from the Citizen Schools curriculum library, to enable the next generation of lawyers, engineers or artists! You will mentor and lead students through hands-on learning projects and help guide them into long-term pathways to education and career success to success. 


The program includes:

  • A library of pre-written curriculum on a variety of subjects
  • Training and school orientation
  • Co-teaching and lesson planning support from a Citizen School staff partner
  • A final "science fair" style presentation and event


We are actively recruiting volunteers for next semester to teach early March 2019 - May 2019.  http://www.citizenschools.org/volunteer
