Our Approach

Tapping into Memphis' 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 Corps

Meet Our Corps

In our pilot year in Memphis (2016-2017), we deployed 16 highly-skilled AmeriCorps members to serve in two public schools. This year (2018-2019), we have 47 AmeriCorps members working in eight schools to impact the futures of hundreds of students.
