'Citizen Teachers' Help Students Outside The Classroom With Apprenticeships
Looking to enhance the learning opportunities of children at a Boston school, Eric Schwarz volunteered to teach skills he had acquired from his career as a journalist.
NBC Nightly News reports the experience inspired Schwarz and friend Ned Rimer to found Citizen Schools, a program that encourages everyday Americans to get involved apprenticing local children in their field.
Supporters can make a contribution to support the national Citizen Schools program.
