What I've Learned In My 3rd Grade Classroom
Sometimes, City Year AmeriCorps members learn as much from the students they serve as their students learn from them! See what Hana Uyeda, a City Year New Hampshire AmeriCorps member serving in a 3rd grade classroom, has learned from her students and her service this year.
Exploring One World At Camp City Year
Over the February vacation, our AmeriCorps members led a four day camp for students at two of the elementary schools we serve. The theme of the camp was One World, and encouraged students to explore a variety of cultures and backgrounds. Read more about some of the activities our students enjoyed during this week!
National Mentorship Month: How Are You A Mentor?
January was National Mentorship Month, and as part of reflecting on their service with City Year to date, we asked a few of our AmeriCorps members to talk about what mentorship means to them. They were asked to think about mentors that they have had in their own lives, as well as how they have been mentors to their own students.
Social Emotional Skills Promote A Positive School Environment
At City Year, we focus on more than just students’ academics; we focus on their social emotional success as well. As part of City Year’s Whole School, Whole Child approach to working with students, AmeriCorps members work on building social emotional learning (SEL) skills with their students in order to help them be kind, successful, and well-rounded individuals both in and out of the classroom.
