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.
