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.
Our AmeriCorps members, students, staff, partners and the broader communities we serve remain our top priorities. We are working diligently to prioritize self-care and to continue checking on one another during this challenging time while leveraging local and national resources to continue service.
March 26, 2020 Update
The City Year Philadelphia office is closed now through at least April 6. All staff members are working remotely.
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.Philadelphia School District Updates
