City Year Orlando Partners
Through strategic partnerships, City Year builds strong bonds with corporations, schools, and individuals to make a difference in the communities and neighborhoods.
City Year Orlando partners with Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) to provide full-time, targeted intervention for students most at risk. Our teams of young leaders support students - before, during, and after school - through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programming that keeps students in school and on track to graduate. This program is sponsored in part by the School Board of Orange County, and the state of Florida.
City Year integrates with district and school partners by including City Year 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. Another 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 for organizations to engage with City Year AmeriCorps members and schools. This sponsorship supports a team of AmeriCorps members and their service in an academically-challenged - helping City Year achieve tangible results with students. More than 100 companies and foundations support City Year teams in their communities nationwide. In Orlando, all eight Title I OCPS partner schools are sponsored by the following Team Sponsors.

Our partnerships are successful because we share common goals: to make a real impact in 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.
