City Year New York
Diverse. Fast-Paced. Tough. It’s not always easy to live in New York, but it’s always worth it. City Year New York is helping the city’s students and schools succeed.
City Year New York AmeriCorps Members provide academic interventions for students, support teachers, and act as mentors and role models. Focusing on the whole child, City Year New York addresses both the academic and social-emotional aspects of a student’s development. Throughout their year of service, City Year AmeriCorps Members provide these vital supports to under-resourced schools while also gaining valuable work-life skills themselves.
