What is a City Year? City Year is many things: a full-time education service organization. A symbol of hope for the students we serve. A family of like-minded individuals for those involved.

Here we rounded up a collection of our favorite City Year Los Angeles videos to give you a peek into the City Year experience. For the full video playlist, click here.

About City Year

Alberto, a 4th grade student in South L.A., was struggling with school until he began working with City Year AmeriCorps member "Mr. Kevin."

Tonji was served by City Year as a child and is today sending forth his own "ripples" of hope as a City Year AmeriCorps member.

Our partnership with Virgil Middle School, 'LAUSD's Diamond in the Rough', is viewed as key to the school's success.

Daniel, a 9th grader in Boyle Heights, was disconnected and disengaged until Emily, his City Year mentor, earned his trust in the classroom.

This year, we launched a Restorative Justice training program through our partnership with the California Conference for Equality and Justice (CCEJ).


Richard, an AmeriCorps member, is a long way from his hometown of Memphis, TN, but he calls his dad when he has a spare moment in his day.
