City Year is an education-focused, nonprofit organization that partners with public schools to help keep students in school and on track to graduate. In communities across the United States and through two international affiliates, this innovative public-private partnership brings together teams of young AmeriCorps members who commit to a year of full-time service in schools. Corps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs.
Founded in Boston in 1988, City Year has established programs in 21 cities, including Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbia, SC, Columbus, Denver, Detroit, Little Rock/North Little Rock, Los Angeles, Baton Rouge, New Orleans, Miami, Milwaukee, New Hampshire, New York, Greater Philadelphia, Rhode Island, San Antonio, San José/Silicon Valley, Seattle/King County, and Washington, D.C., and international affiliates in Johannesburg, South Africa and London, England. City Year is a proud member of AmeriCorps.
