City Year
Greater Boston

While Boston’s nickname is The Hub, known for being a vibrant center for academia, business, tech and medicine, some students in Greater Boston face significant challenges every day. Together we can help students build on their strengths and thrive.

What Do We Do?

We are City Year. We are challenging the educational status quo with tenacity, passion and empathy. We create environments where young people belong, so they can fulfill their potential.
