DURING THE SEASON OF GIVING, HELP CITY YEAR LOS ANGELES EMPOWER MORE STUDENTS!

Any strong relationship is built on the virtues of trust and consistency. The relationship between mentor and student is no different. That’s why our City Year AmeriCorps members show up, every single day, through hardships and wins, for the students who need them most.

Our near-peer AmeriCorps members are uniquely equipped to connect with students - their dreams, their fears, their hopes - because many of them are from similar backgrounds and cultures. Students see their City Year mentors and see themselves, helping them build a strong sense of who they are, why they matter, and who they want to become. City Year mentors empower students to have agency and embolden them to dream without restraint.

ABOUT CITY YEAR

At City Year, we’re working to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support that students actually need, and what their schools are designed and resourced to provide. In doing so, we’re helping to increase graduation rates across the country, and changing the lives of the students we serve.
