Nearly 15,000 students in Philadelphia are at risk for dropping out. The consequences are real: Students who drop out are eight times more likely to become incarcerated and three times more likely to be unemployed. When a student drops out of school it has a lasting effect on our communities.
When you support City Year, we’ll use your help to put more corps 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.
City Year is making headlines for our work within the schools and communities where we serve. Here you can read what others have to say about us on a local and national level, and how we are impacting lives in the classroom and beyond.
