The Story

EVENT DATE: May 06, 2018


At City Year, we’re working in high-need and high-risk communities to bridge the gap between the support that students need and what their schools are designed to provide. In doing so, we're helping to increase graduation rates across the country, and making an impact in the lives of the students we serve. 

In Boston, our 289 AmeriCorps members work each day with more than 12,000 students in grades three through nine, serving as tutors, mentors, and role models for ​the ​students who need it most. By focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance, AmeriCorps members are uniquely positioned to help students reach their full potential.

We encourage you to get to know our runners and read about their inspiring reasons for supporting City Year’s work. If you are moved to make a donation, please know how much we appreciate your investment and support.
