highly skilled Near-Peer mentors
City Year Orlando deploys highly skilled AmeriCorps members to serve in eight schools: Catalina Elementary School, Eccleston Elementary, Evans High School, Jones High School, Meadowbrook Middle School, Memorial Middle School, Oak Ridge High School, and Walker Middle School.
We know all students can succeed. At the same time, more than 10 million children live in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty. These students face adversity that interferes with their ability to arrive at school every day ready to learn.
