We are City Year. We are challenging the educational status quo with tenacity, passion and empathy. We create environments where young people feel like they belong, so they can fulfill their potential.
Here tradition is both honored and given a modern twist. With deeply rooted history and culture evident throughout the city’s unique architecture and landmarks, there is plenty to explore.
Across our partner schools in Baton Rouge, administration, teachers, students, families and City Year are working together to get more students on track for graduation. Together, we can make a difference for Baton Rouge’s students.
We partner with educators while supporting, mentoring and lifting up our students so that they are able to fully take advantage of their drive and skill sets.
