YOU MUST BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THE WORLD.
City Year corps members are as diverse a group as the communities they serve. We’re looking for you if you want to give back, work alongside a diverse group of people and are ready to change the world.
A year of service is challenging and tiring, but also rewarding and fulfilling. While there is no typical corps member background, all corps members must have the ability to work on a team, be a leader, develop leadership skills and be ready to commit 10 months of full-time service for children and communities across the country.
Our corps members must also meet these eligibility requirements. To participate, you must:
Have a college degree or have attended some college, have a high school or diploma or GED, or be willing to earn a GED
Be able to dedicate 10 months to full-time service
Be between the ages of 17 and 24
Be a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident alien
Have served no more than 3 terms in another AmeriCorps, NCCC or VISTA program
Agree to a background or security check
Previous experiences with service, tutoring, mentoring and leadership help strengthen candidacy.
