About us It takes a village for students to thrive. Every student has the potential to thrive in school and beyond, but not all have the opportunities to do so. At Citizen Schools, we believe that equity begins with opportunity. To close the opportunity gap in education, we need systems change, which requires work at multiple levels. We bring students hands-on learning projects with career mentors in school, coach and train teachers to provide these opportunities during school, and share capacity, resources & best practices with other communities.
