Posted on September 23, 2013

For support of a second Deputy Campus Director at Bronx Writing Academy, which is required as they will be serving the entire school of about 450 students for the first time in the upcoming school year. Citizen Schools partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for children by mobilizing a second shift of afternoon educators who provide academic support, leadership development, college awareness and access, and exposure to diverse careers through “apprenticeships” — hands-on projects taught by volunteers from business and community organizations. Through their expanded learning time model, schools partnering with them to create a longer and more robust day for students have dramatically improved school-wide proficiency rates in English and math.
