Our Impact

City Year Cleveland's Impact

Since 1996, City Year Cleveland AmeriCorps members have positively impacted Cleveland’s partner schools. Through our data-driven approach and by coming together with our partners and schools, City Year is continuing to make a measurable impact in the lives of the students and communities we’re serving, and we’ve got the results to show for it.

When you support City Year, we’ll use your help to put more AmeriCorps members into more schools nationwide – which helps more students and schools succeed. By 2023, we aspire to serve 1 million students per day, in over 1,200 schools nationwide, something that’s only possible with the continued support of our donors and partners.
