Investing in student success and the next generation of leaders

City Year Greater Boston provides a powerful double bottom line: improved outcomes for students in systemically under-resourced schools and the cultivation of the next generation of leaders through our alums.

Your financial support is key to having more AmeriCorps members in Boston and Everett Public Schools classrooms, serving as tutors, mentors and role models. Corps members, serving as an additional caring adult in a student’s life, can make all the difference. Help us:

  • Improve high school graduation rates and academic performance
  • Strengthen social and emotional skills, like teamwork and decision-making
  • Create equal access to positive learning environments where all students can thrive
