One thing we never stop thinking about at City Year is the future—the future of the students we serve, and the future corps who will become their next motivators, coaches, mentors and role models. That’s why, today, we’re excited to launch our application for the 2017-2018 corps. 

Completing any application is not a process to be taken lightly. At the same time, we don’t believe an application should take you hours upon hours to complete. Our new application is easier and simpler to submit. How? We ask only the most important and necessary questions about your skills, experiences and qualifications that will help us focus in on your intention, interest and core values.  We look for individuals who we believe will be able to have the greatest impact on our students. 

We also know that your desire to join City Year and mentor students might not be tied to one particular location. That’s why our new application allows you to indicate your top location preference, as well as three alternative cities where you’d be willing and interested in serving.  

One of our favorite features of the new application is that it’s mobile friendly. Now, you can complete the application whenever and wherever it’s most convenient for you. You can save your updates and return at any time to finish submitting your materials.  

City Year looks for individuals of different races, ethnicities, economic backgrounds, religions, genders, and political backgrounds.  We’re looking for individuals who are ready to make a difference, working alongside teachers and their peers, to support students who need extra attention and support inside the classroom. 

The energy and idealism of young adults such as yourself are, quite simply, among the most powerful and transformative forces at work in the world today. At City Year, we’re committed to engaging the idealism and civic energy of leaders like you to achieve positive change for students and schools in our country's highest need communities. Our experience is clear: when given big goals, young people inevitably surpass our highest expectations and achieve extraordinary results.  

Our students need idealistic mentors like you. Apply now to #makebetterhappen for students with City Year.
