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 act as positive role models and near-peer mentors to elementary and middle school public school students. By partnering with NYC teachers, “City Years” drive measurable gains in academic and social emotional performance through in-class intervention, as well as robust after school programs.
Ensuring more students are on track to high school graduation
Research shows that even academically prepared students are at risk of falling off track. City Year supported students, ensuring that:
- 85% of students stayed on track in English Language Arts with a C or higher
- 87% of students stayed on track in mathematics with a C or higher
Partnering with teachers and principals
- 98% of partner teachers agree that AmeriCorps members fostered a positive learning environment for learning
- 97% of partner principals agree that City Year AmeriCorps members serve as positive role models
The work City Year AmeriCorps Members do in schools is critical for our Bronx community and the academic development of elementary and middle school students.
