Our Approach

Tapping into New York's Potential

At City Year, we’re working to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support the students in the communities actually need, and what their schools are designed to provide. In doing so, we’re helping to increase graduation rates across the country, and changing the lives of the students we serve.

Our Impact

Powerful Results

During the 2014 - 2015 our AmeriCorps members served students in 24 New York City public schools using our Whole School, Whole Child model. Along the way, we measured our success.
