Advice: City Year is a great place for anyone to learn, grow and serve. If you are interested in applying, reach out to recruiters to get your questions answered and ask to communicate with a current serving Corps Member. Make sure that City Year's mission and values are aligned with yours for a deeper connection to service and education.

Advice: City Year is a great stepping stone to your career. Reach out to recruiters and/or your career services' office for students from your school that are serving or have served with City Year. If you can sign up for an open house at a City Year site, that would give you a new perspective as well. Do your homework on how City Year would be the best option for you and for the community as a whole.
