Partnerships

City Year partners contribute their time, talent and resources to ensure public schools are places all students can thrive.

SAISD logoCity Year partners with teachers and schools in San Antonio Independent School District to help the students in our community thrive and achieve their goals. Our AmeriCorps members help make school a welcoming, joyful place where students feel like they belong, and where they can learn and grow. According to a recent study (May 2020) released by John Hopkins University, City Year AmeriCorps members’ social-emotional work helps students gain an entire year in school (students grade 3-10). It is estimated that COVID-19 has caused up to a year of learning loss for students, which means that City Year’s work is essential to bridging the gap more than ever.

AmeriCorps members focus on the whole child through academic interventions in Math and English Language Arts (classroom assistance and one on one tutoring), hosting extra-curricular activities, working to increase attendance, and doing behavioral coaching to ensure social-emotional learning.
