In America today...
...Only 1 in 2 children of color graduate high school
...Of those who make it to college, only 28% of African American students graduate with a degree…only 16% of Latino students do
...This, at a time when high school drop outs are 4x more likely to be unemployed and close to 50% more likely to be incarcerated
Citizen Schools Is Changing This Reality.
Last year in Boston, our schools increased student math proficiency scores by 10 to 19 points - in some cases cutting in half the gap with the State average.
Third party long-term evaluation studies confirm that our students are not only closing achievement gaps while with us in middle school; they are ultimately going on to graduate HS at 20% higher rates than peers and going on to college at significanly higher rates too.

Will you contribute to my campaign to raise $1,000 by the end of March to support our work?
This grassroots campaign is part of an overall effort to raise $40,000 as a full staff. My ask of you is modest in comparison to the blood, sweat and tears our young teachers are pouring into their year of service. Please consider contributing whatever you can to underwrite our work.
Thanks for your support and your belief!
