The generosity of our partners helps us support more than 11,000 Orlando students. Together, we’re contributing to a clearer and bolder vision of what education can and should be for all children.
City Year integrates with Orange County Public Schools to jointly develop strategies for multi-year, sustainable impact. This deep partnership with the school district allows for mutual learning, shared commitments and alignment on operating conditions, which help to maximize City Year’s impact and achieve a strong return on investment. A critical City Year Orlando partner for program success is Volunteer Florida/AmeriCorps, the federal agency which helps financially support the idealistic young adults needed for our work in schools. Through our public-private partnership, City Year’s model combines tutoring, mentoring, school-climate activities and afterschool programming into a cost-effective, complete package for schools.
Our Team Sponsors invest in a unique opportunity to engage with City Year AmeriCorps members and schools. Team Sponsors directly support a team of AmeriCorps members and their service—helping City Year achieve tangible results with students. In Orlando, our Title I OCPS partner schools are sponsored by the following Team Sponsors:
Catalina Elementary School
Eccleston Elementary School
Jones High School
Judson B. Walker Middle School
Meadowbrook Middle School
Memorial Middle School
Maynard Evans High School
Oak Ridge High School
Our partnerships are successful because we share common goals: to make a real impact the individual lives of students, to better our communities and to build our nation as a whole. Our partners know that with our work, we are also addressing a long-term economic problem. Program investors support our work in schools all day, every day, all year.
