"I hate the idea of a person being a number. I think working with students individually makes them more than just a number. You see what makes them tick, you see what approaches will and will not work with them. Then you see them in the grand scheme of everything in the classroom and you start to understand." Our AmeriCorps members describe how City Year measures and identifies success--both in our students and our corps members.
Serving your AmeriCorps year with City Year is more than just a gap year. It will hone your professional skills and help launch your career--in any field you choose! Our alumni and AmeriCorps members explain how they used their AmeriCorps year as a stepping stone to success.
Throughout the course of your service year, your team will become your rock, your foundation. From collaborating to problem-solving, you'll work together to support not only the students on your focus lists, but also then entire school community. Our alumni and current corps members share their insights and experience on being part of a City Year team.
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. AmeriCorps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs. – less
