Cisco Supports Citizen Schools as a National Leadership Partner

August 28, 2013 - 7 Comments

Citizen Schools, a national nonprofit organization that partners with middle schools to expand the learning day for underserved students, today announced Cisco as a new National Leadership Partner.

Cisco and the Cisco Foundation have supported Citizen Schools since 2009, providing more than $1.24 million in grants and products to help the program expand from 10 schools in five states to 31 schools in seven states and improve communication among staff nationally.

Also, more than 125 Cisco employees have volunteered with the nonprofit’s Citizen Teacher program, leading 10-week apprenticeships for middle school students.
