This fall, City Year AmeriCorps members across the country kicked off their service year with a fresh new look.

City Year AmeriCorps members stand outside showing off their new uniforms that include black pants and grey shirts. Red and yellow bombers are still a part of the City Year uniform.

Redesigned with feedback from last year’s teams, City Year’s 30th anniversary uniform is professional and practical—ensuring our AmeriCorps members are ready to serve as mentors, tutors and role models every day, rain or shine.

Check out the photos below to get a glimpse of our new look.   

Student Success Coach Uniform

For our daily work in schools, City Year AmeriCorps members have swapped out khakis for black pants or skirts, and they have a choice between gray polos and button up tops.

When training is on the agenda, AmeriCorps members wear gray t-shirts and black pants or skirts, for a more casual, comfortable and professional look.

Physical Service

Don’t worry, City Year’s beloved khakis aren’t gone for good! AmeriCorps members still wear khaki pants during physical service projects, where they often are painting, planting or assembling.

The Red and Yellow Jacket

One element of our uniform that hasn’t changed: City Year’s iconic red and yellow jackets, which remain a powerful symbol of our service and our values.

While the threads our corps has donned over the past 30 years have evolved, what hasn’t changed is what the uniform represents: inspiration, idealism and commitment to service that extends from year to year, school to school, city to city and generation to generation. From Boston to Los Angeles and at every site in between, City Year AmeriCorps members are making a difference for our students, schools and communities—and we’re excited to see the impact they’ll have this year.
