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.

June 2, 2020 Update

The City Year Philadelphia office will remain closed until further notice. All staff members are working remotely.

AmeriCorps Members and Service

With the closure of public schools now in effect for the remainder of the academic year, 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.
