City Year Dallas
Fast-growing Dallas is one of the top destinations for young adults seeking new opportunities. AmeriCorps members here are dedicated to helping their students thrive inside and outside the classroom.
Serving in Dallas
While Dallas is widely known for being a vibrant center for academia, business, tech and medicine, some students in Dallas face significant challenges every day. As the largest school district in Texas, the Dallas School District serves more than 15,000 students across 125 schools.
Your corps experience
City Year is a key partner to the Dallas School District in creating equitable learning opportunities for all students and develop the city’s future leaders. AmeriCorps members support teachers and staff in delivering instruction that serves the development of the whole child and is responsive to the diverse racial, cultural and linguistic needs of Dallas youth.
With more than 76% of students tutored by AmeriCorps members last year improving their test scores, AmeriCorps members are truly making an impact. A close-knit community with ample opportunities to develop meaningful personal and professional relationships, Dallas is an ideal place to serve.
