City Year Philadelphia COVID-19 Updates

During this unprecedented time of crisis related to COVID-19, City Year Philadelphia is committed to the safety and well-being of our community.

March 26, 2020 Update

The City Year Philadelphia office is closed now through at least April 6. All staff members are working remotely.

AmeriCorps Members and Service

With the closure of public schools through at least April 6, we’re working creatively to identify ways for AmeriCorps members to continue supporting students and families given limitations and safety precautions. Corps members unable to serve due to school closures will continue receiving their stipend, healthcare, and other benefits.
