City Year Little Rock / North Little Rock
City Year unites young people of all backgrounds between the ages of 17 and 24 for a year of full–time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world. As tutors, mentors and role models, these diverse leaders make a difference in the lives of children and transform schools and neighborhoods.
According to the Arkansas Department of Education, approximately 41% of all third graders in Central Arkansas are functionally illiterate. Of that group, according to the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Literacy Corps, about a quarter of those students will not graduate from high school.
You can change the course of these children’s lives by joining City Year Little Rock/North Little Rock. As a tutor and mentor, you will work in high-need neighborhoods where you will become a powerful role model to youth and help create solutions for community problems.
