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.
