About City Year

City Year helps students and schools succeed. Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members provide support to students, classrooms and the whole school, helping to ensure that students in systemically under-resourced schools receive a high-quality education that prepares them with the skills and mindsets to thrive and contribute to their community.

A 2015 study shows that schools that partner with City Year were up to two-to-three times more likely to improve on math and English assessments. A proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network, City Year is supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service, local school districts and private philanthropy. City Year partners with public schools in 29 communities across the U.S. and through international affiliates in the U.K. and South Africa.

What You'll Do

As a City Year AmeriCorps member, your service will focus on helping students get and/or remain on track to graduate by providing academic support, delivering behavior and attendance coaching and encouraging student engagement to promote a positive school climate.

As appropriate to the activity and at the direction of the school district, school partner, and/or City Year, service and member development may be delivered in-person or through a virtual platform such as Microsoft Teams, Zoom, Google Classroom, Schoology, Nearpod and Canvas. City Year AmeriCorps member uniforms are required and are provided by City Year.
