Our Mission

Support our mission by creating your own fundraiser.

City Year partners with schools and teachers to place trained young adults in schools where they’re needed most to provide individual support to students who need extra care and attention. Working side-by-side with teachers, City Year AmeriCorps members use research-based tools and techniques to help students who are struggling—so more kids stay in school and on track to succeed.

Every child has the potential to succeed, but many face challenges in the classroom and at home that make it hard for them to stick with school. Research shows that struggling students can succeed with the right support at the right time, but teachers and schools don’t always have the time and resources to meet each student’s needs. City Year fills the gap with a unique, research-driven strategy proven to keep more students in school and on track.

Corps Members give a year of their lives to help students and schools succeed. Wearing their signature red jackets, diverse teams of Corps Members arrive before the bell rings and stay until the last student goes home—helping to transform a school’s culture with passion, energy and idealism.

They get training and support to help students deal with tough challenges. They know how to spot and respond to critical early warning signs that a student is at risk of dropping out—the “ABCs” of poor attendance, behavior and course performance. City Year’s Corps Members are there for kids every day, all day, year after year—providing individualized academic and developmental support. When students don’t show up at school, Corps Members get them to come in. When students fall behind in class, corps members tutor them before, during and after school so they can catch up. Our Corps Members inspire kids to set high expectations and get them excited about learning. With City Year’s help, struggling schools have the extra people power needed to support the hundreds of students who need extra attention.
