City Year

City Year partners with public schools in high-poverty communities to help bridge the gap between what students need and what schools are designed to provide.  City Year corps members provide 11 months of full-time service as tutors, mentors, and role models to help children stay in school and on track and transform schools and communities across the United States. Just as important, during their year of service, corps members develop civic leadership skills they can use throughout a lifetime of community service.  City Year corps members are as diverse a group as the communities they serve.
