City Year #givingtuesday

Support City Year this #GivingTuesday to Help More Students Reach Graduation and Beyond!

Each year, more than 800,000 students drop out of school. But we believe that small, every-day meaningful moments with a mentor and tutor can help change the way students think and feel about school.  

On this day of giving back, we’re celebrating the commitment more than 3,000 City Year AmeriCorps members made to serve students this year in 292 high-need schools across the country. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram to experience a day through the eyes of our AmeriCorps members. Witness the diverse ways they build relationships with students, teachers and parents to help motivate students.
