City Year Milwaukee

Milwaukee is a city full of neighborhoods that embrace and celebrate various cultures. Together, in Milwaukee, we can create great opportunities where students thrive inside and outside the classroom.

We are working to address the lack of equitable access to educational opportunities. Our City Year Milwaukee AmeriCorps members partner with teachers and schools to add more support and to help create learning environments where all students can build on their strengths and fully engage in their learning.

Accelerating academic growth in Milwaukee

  • 47% of City Year students, from all 13 partner schools, increased their STAR assessment score in math over the course of the year, compared to 35% of their peers
  • 44% of City Year students, across all 13 schools, increased their STAR assessment score in English Language Arts over the course of the year, compared to 32.6% of their peers

Engaging Families

  • 17,830 positive phone calls home to parents or guardians to encourage regular attendance and positive behavior
  • 116 events engaged nearly 30,000 students, family members and school staff

Partnering with Schools

  • 91% of City Year Milwaukee partner teachers believe that City Year Milwaukee AmeriCorps members improve academic performance in their classrooms.

City Year has built a record in Milwaukee. By strengthening students and families, City Year is strengthening the fabric of Milwaukee.
