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.
Investing Time, Talent, and Treasure in Our Mission
Whether you dedicate hours as a volunteer, offer your expertise towards ad-hoc projects, or financially support us, your investment in City Year makes a difference in the lives of the students and AmeriCorps members we support year after year.
For the students we serve, this school year brings new challenges due to physical school closures, 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, both in-person and virtually. Whether it is a virtual tutoring session, ad-hoc emotional support calls, or leading Care Pods, our supporters make it possible for us to adapt our service to meet the needs of our students and school partners.
For the young adults who serve as City Year AmeriCorps Members, school closures bring daily reminders that their career journey after City Year Graduation remains uncertain. Just as AmeriCorps members tirelessly mentor and support students, City Year is gathering expertise and resources for them as they navigate the here and now – and post-graduation endeavors. Whether it is a virtual seminar, a career workshop, or service of a volunteer mentor, our supporters make it possible for us to meet the needs of our AmeriCorps members.
