THE STORY:

I am currently a first-year AmeriCorps Volunteer with City Year. I work at 93rd St Elementary School in Watts, LA with 5th grade students. I spend most of the day in the classroom tutoring and coaching students on math and english. The other half of my time is spent in small group or 1 on 1 planned interventions, where I implement session plans I have written that are oriented to help students get back on grade level. In addition, I work with certain students on behavior mentoring, where I coach them to grow into leaders. We also run an after-school program that incorporates lesson plans, homework help, enrichment lessons, and outdoor play time. I came to City Year because I wanted to do a year of service and I wanted to work with youth. It is safe to say City Year has exceeded my expectations.

 

 

City Year wrote -

1 in 4 students don't graduate. We want to change that. Help our runners cross the finish line so we can help more students cross the stage.

City Year is a national education-based nonprofit that helps high-need ubran schools keep students in school and on track to graduate. With your support, we can continue to provide thousands of students the extra care and support they need to succeed.
