Volunteer Teacher for 11-week apprenticeship with middle school students in Newark

Citizen Schools is a national non-profit serving low-income middle-school students after school, extending the number of hours spent in an active learning environment. A core program element is the project-based student apprenticeship.  Each semester, generous volunteers get trained to become Citizen Teachers who lead these hands-on apprenticeships on a topic of their choosing, and about which they are both passionate and knowledgeable.  These apprenticeships culminate in a WOW! moment where students teach back what they learned via the creation of a high-quality product, service or presentation that demonstrates their mastery.

We are currently recruiting volunteers for the Fall semester to spend 90 minutes a week on either a Tuesday or Thursday (for 11 weeks) as Citizen Teachers in Newark (NJ) and would be interested in engaging yourself and/or your organization in the process.

START DATE: October 6, 2009

END DATE: December 17, 2009
