I have been working at Citizen Schools
I loved my internship with Citizen Schools. I was just there for the summer but it was a laid back environment with wonderful people and great mentors. I recommend it to any intern interested in education non-profit, Americorp, and the like.
No real cons. It was an overall great experience.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Citizen Schools.
It was a joke. First, there was a phone interview. They are looking for specific answers. Look at their website, and use the same language you see there - otherwise, they are likely to pass on you. FYI - the people who conduct the phone interviews are often Teaching Associates or Teaching Fellows (average age 22 or 23). Often they are untrained and unsupervised in this role. They are very rarely prepared for the actual interview because on top of this responsibility, they are typically working 50+ hours with no additional time or pay scheduled for this additional responsibility. Second, I was required to fly in from out of town (on my own dime). Then, I had to wait over an hour for my interviewer to show up. My interview had been scheduled for 8:00 AM, but the office did not open until 9:00 AM. The person arrived at 9:30 with no apology for making me wait. We sat in a Starbucks and talked about my teaching experience for all of 5 minutes. This experience should have been a huge red flag for how the company operates.
