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.


Investing in student success

Your financial support is key to having more AmeriCorps members in Boston and Everett Public Schools classrooms, serving as tutors, mentors and role models. These 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
