What City Year is all about: City Year is an education-focused nonprofit organization that unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service to keep students in school and on track to graduation. At City Year's  26 urban locations across the United States, teams of trained young people - called corps members - serve full-time in schools for the academic year as tutors, mentors, and role models. By focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance, indicators which identify students who are at risk of dropping out, corps members are uniquely able to help students and schools succeed.
 
What the Shadow Day is all about: If you're interested in applying to serve with City Year and make a difference in a school community, come see what it's like for our current corps members! You will have the opportunity to visit a school in which City Year serves and see what we do up close.
Although the day will vary slightly at each site, Shadow Day participants may:
-learn about City Year's work addressing the national dropout crisis in public schools
-engage in a leadership workshop similar to training our corps members receive
-enjoy light refreshments
-interact with and observe current corps members in action at the public school where they serve
 
Next Application Deadline: February 15, 2014
