Support students in Boston
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.
With a strong culture and rich history, Boston has evolved into a welcoming and energetic city that is full of young professionals.
There are 250 highly-skilled AmeriCorps members working with students throughout Boston.
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.
