City Year Detroit

Detroit’s diversity, thriving arts and food scenes, and legendary music all make the city unique and vibrant, but Detroit’s greatest assets are its people and sense of community.

Check out our 2021 Impact Report here!!

We are working to address the lack of equitable access to educational opportunities. Our City Year Detroit AmeriCorps members partner with teachers and schools to add more support and to help create learning environments where all students can build on their strengths and fully engage in their learning.
