Time Commitment

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 Greenleaf Elementary School (a public school in the Oakland Unified School District) at 6328 E. 17th Street; Oakland, CA 94621 or one of Citizen Schools' other partner schools in San Jose, Redwood City 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 this semester to teach early March 2019 - May 2019.  http://www.citizenschools.org/volunteer
