At CITIZEN SCHOOLS, adolescents work side by side with experts to explore new fields, learn new skills, and build a foundation for their future. We serve adolescents in low-income communities at a critical point in their development – as they search for their pathway into the adult world. Every semester Citizen Schools students participate in 10-week apprenticeships taught by Citizen Teachers, who are volunteers from the community, local universities, and businesses. This semester in Durham, students participate in Electrical Engineering, Wed Design, Mobile App Design, Graphic Novels, Environmental Studies, Mock Trial, Mathematic Mysteries, and Science Experiments.
