Overview

About City Year:

City Year was founded in 1988 on the belief that young people can change the world. City Year is an education focused, nonprofit organization that unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service aimed at keeping students in school and on track to graduation. At City Year’s 29 urban locations across the United States and two international affiliates, teams of trained young people called AmeriCorps members serve full-time in schools during the academic year as tutors, mentors and role models. By focusing on attendance, behavior and course performance, which identify students who are at risk of not graduating on time, City Year AmeriCorps members are uniquely positioned to help students and schools succeed.

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. You will be assigned to a diverse team of 8-15 young adults. Beginning each day before the first school bell rings and staying until the last child leaves the after-school program, you’ll serve students, schools and communities in a variety of ways
