City Year
San José/
Silicon Valley

San José is home to an ethnically diverse community, booming technology companies and aspiring entrepreneurs. City Year San José/Silicon Valley works alongside teachers and community partners to support students across our city.

Support Their Futures

Now more than ever, young peopleboth students and AmeriCorps members need individuals who believe in their future.

For the students we serve, school closures bring new challenges, ones that come from living in communities affected by systemic inequities. And City Year is working alongside its school district partners to help students grow and thrive during this time. Whether it is a virtual tutoring session, ad-hoc emotional support calls, or new remote lessons, we are shifting our service to ensure our commitment to students’ futures.

For the young adults who pledged time to serve as AmeriCorps members, school closures bring daily reminders that their career journey after City Year Graduation brings new uncertainty. Just as AmeriCorps members tirelessly mentor and support students, City Year is gathering mentors and resources for them as they navigate the here and now – and post-graduation endeavors. From virtual seminars to career workshops, we are mobilizing resources to ensure our commitment to AmeriCorps members’ futures.

Your financial generosity is critical in sustaining our organization’s shifted priorities during the COVID-19 pandemic:
  • Implementing virtual academic and socio-emotional learning for students in East San Jose
  • Developing AmeriCorps members into life-long leaders, ready for workforce and beyond
  • Preparing for the transition back to school, resourcing our students and schools with trained mentors and programming

Help students and AmeriCorps members thrive

Every contribution makes a difference, ensuring that we can continue helping young people reach their full potential.
