Celebrate the commencement of our amazing AmeriCorps members!
Celebrate the AmeriCorps members who served as tutors and mentors to New Orleans public school students throughout the 2019-2020 school year. City Year AmeriCorps members will receive diplomas, marking the completion of over 85,000 hours of service to support New Orleans’s students.
This year, City Year New Orleans AmeriCorps members served 4,000 students in 6 schools, helping students build on their strengths and cultivate social, emotional and academic skills, from mastering fractions to learning to work in teams—skills that are important in school and in life. AmeriCorps members tutor students one-on-one or in small groups, help students stay focused in class, organize school-wide events and run afterschool programs. Through their service, City Year AmeriCorps members not only make a difference in the lives of students they serve, but also acquire valuable professional experience that prepare them to be leaders in their communities and careers.
