AmeriCorps has created a growing movement of citizens committed to improving our communities and nation. City Year is proud to be part of this sweeping national service network. We're excited to celebrate its extraordinary impact over the last 25 years and look forward to another 25 years of greater impact and growth.
About the Team Sponsor Program- City Year’s signature partnership for private sector civic engagement- offers partners a unique opportunity to support and engage the young leaders of City Year in their full-time service to students and schools. Team sponsorship also delivers a high level of local employee engagement and brand visibility. Team Sponsors partner with a team of AmeriCorps members to make a direct impact in their community by investing their time, resources and talent. Team Sponsors and their employees join their team for events throughout the year, including volunteering on service days, participating in leadership development workshops for AmeriCorps members and hosting the team at their offices.
For nearly ten years, City Year has partnered with the Chicago Public School system to deliver its Whole School, Whole Child programming to schools in Chicago’s high-need neighborhoods. AmeriCorps members support students with emphasis on tutoring in math and English as well as character building through behavioral initatives, attendance support, and after-school programming.
