We want to give you a few more ways to make sure you are ready for the application and the experience itself. If you're a jump right in kind of person, feel free to scroll all the way to the bottom.

First, decide on your location

In the City Year application, you can designate your location preferences in one of three ways:

You can also apply “wherever I’m most needed,” meaning that you are willing to relocate and serve at any of City Year’s locations nationwide.
