We welcome your support
According to a Northeastern University study, society bears a cost of $292,000 for every student who drops out of high school in lost earnings and increased social services costs. However, with 12% of our nation's schools producing 50% of dropouts, the dropout crisis is highly concentrated and solvable. Things need to change, and we need your support to make it happen.
How you can help keep students in school and on track
When you partner with City Year, we’ll use your donation to put more AmeriCorps members into more schools nationwide. Your support will allow us to partner with more schools and communities, to dramatically increase the number of students who reach 10th grade on time and on track, making them four times more likely to graduate. Your support will help us implement our WHOLE SCHOOL, WHOLE CHILD service that provides individualized support to students who need it, while also establishing an overall positive learning environment in the schools throughout America that need us the most. Your support will bring us that much closer to achieving our Long Term Impact Strategy-our plan for growth that'll double the number of students in our schools who reach the 10th grade on track and on time. Ultimately, we aspire to serve over 800,000 students per day, in 1,200 schools nationwide, something that’s only possible with the continued support of our donors and partners.
MORE THAN HALF of the financial support for City Year’s mission to help students reach graduation and beyond comes from individuals, corporations, and foundations.
See the impact their support is making.
