If you've ever seen the word "WOW" without an "!" and thought something looked funny, you're a true Citizen Schools alumni.
We all know working with middle school students is not easy, but we've witnessed that "WOW! moment" with a student at some point during our Citizen Schools experience that makes it all worth it, even if you never worked on campus.
As alumni of the Citizen Schools community, you have left a legacy that continues to be upheld and developed by the educators who follow in your footsteps. Karltz and Roobvia are just a few of the thousands of students who have been impacted by people like you. But you still have a role to play.
Your contribution will help us close the achievement gap, ensuring that thousands of students will have access to the tools they need to succeed.
On behalf of our students and their families, as well as our staff, volunteers, and board members, thank you for your support.

What does your money help us do?
$15 = provides one month of materials for students to complete high quality academic homework during our structured homework time.
$20 = provides one month of supplies for our CHOICE time activities where students play sports, do art projects, learn yoga, or learn to make pinatas.
$80 = provides one semester of support for one apprenticeship team. An apprenticeship is a focused learning time, where 12 students learn professional skills from a community volunteer. Examples from our campus this term are Solar Cars, Mock Trial, Forensic Accounting, and Mass Poetry Project.
$150 = provides one month of food and supplies for special family events at our schools such as family potlucks. We do these to welcome parents, teachers, and school administrators to come together and share in the learning that their children and students do every day.
