Strong partnerships for a better future
Our corporate partners play a critical role at City Year by supporting us with their time, expertise and resources. We'll work closely with you to build a values-driven partnership that engages your employees, enhances your brand and drives impact in the communities we serve.
Each of our corporate partnerships are customized to deliver on our shared goals. We are proud that that some of our national partners have worked with City Year since the founding of our organization more than 30 years ago. Our national footprint means we can serve your needs across the country. Our national partners benefit from:
- Opportunities to engage in educational improvement initiatives on a national and local level
- Engagement opportunities for your employees in service days and at events
- Brand visibility and storytelling opportunities
- Demonstrated impact supporting students and our 3,000 AmeriCorps members
Ways to partner with us
Support national initiatives that drive impact in schools across the country. Together, we can accelerate City Year’s impact on 226,000 students at 350 schools in 29 cities where we address the challenge of inequitable access to educational opportunities.
Support City Year in a specific community
Team and program sponsorships are premier opportunities for companies to engage with City Year’s work in your local community. Your company would support the work of City Year AmeriCorps members in schools as they make a difference in the lives of students they serve while also acquiring valuable experience that help prepare them to be leaders in their communities and careers.
