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 Roots International Academy, a public school in the Oakland Unified School District, at 1390 66th Avenue; Oakland, CA 95621 or one of Citizen Schools' other partner schools in San Jose, Oakland or Redwood City. 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


Estimated 3 - 4 hours per week for 10 weeks total, including 90 minutes per week in the classroom with students.
