Our Approach

Tapping into Milwaukee's 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 Impact

Powerful Results

Nearly one in three Milwaukee public school students are at risk to drop out. Our 100 diverse, highly-skilled City Year Milwaukee AmeriCorps members serve as near-peer tutors and mentors to keep students in school and on track.
