City Year Jacksonville
A big city with a small-town vibe and Southern charm, Jacksonville is a friendly and welcoming city that embraces change and newcomers. Together, we work alongside teachers, principals and community partners to support students in our public schools.
Investing in student success
Thank you for your interest in supporting City Year Jacksonville! Ongoing support like yours is essential to the success of our AmeriCorps members and the students they serve in Jacksonville’s systematically under-resourced schools.
The City Year Jacksonville team works tirelessly every day in schools alongside our partners to determine how to best meet the growing and evolving needs of our community’s young people. And it has become clear that now, more than ever, City Year’s foundational focus on soft skill development tied to integrated academics is a critical component of students’ success. We partner with teachers and administrators to create a more welcoming, equitable learning environment — and to help students rise above the systemic obstacles in their path by supporting their overall growth as a young person.
Your investment enables us to:
- Improve students’ academic performance and school attendance.
- Strengthen students’ soft skills, like teamwork and decision-making.
- Create equal access to positive learning environments where all students can thrive.
