Our Approach

Tapping Into Detroit's Potential

At City Year, we believe education has the power to help every child reach his or her potential. However, in high-poverty communities there are external factors and obstacles students are faced with every day that can interfere with their ability to get to school ready to learn.

Our Impact

Powerful Results

Using our Whole School, Whole Child model, our AmeriCorps members recently helped turn around eight Detroit schools. Along the way, we measured our success.

Our Corps

Highly Skilled Near-Peer mentors

Since 1999, City Year has turned around Detroit’s most disadvantaged schools. Recently, we deployed 71 highly skilled corps members to serve in 8 middle and high schools.
