City Year helps bridge the gap between what students need and what schools are designed to deliver. City Year AmeriCorps members serve full-time, working side-by-side with teachers, before, during and after school. By serving in elementary, middle and high schools, we stick with students year after year and become a consistent part of their school experience. Every City Year AmeriCorps member completes at least 1,700 hours of service each year. We work in partnership with school districts to support their goals and provide additional support – the human capital – required to make a difference with students who are at risk of dropping out. City Year AmeriCorps members serve full-time in grades 3 through 9.
