What’s in a City Year experience?
When you join City Year, you work alongside a team to create learning environments where all students can succeed. As you earn a stipend, you help support students' social, emotional and academic development while providing schools with additional capacity to enhance learning and belonging.
A strong start each day
Our day begins before the students arrive. City Year AmeriCorps members set the tone for the day and greet students as they enter the school building—a rousing welcome and an invitation to learn, grow and connect.
In the classroom
We help students build on their strengths and take risks in their learning. Sitting alongside students, rotating through the classroom, and occasionally taking students aside, we help them develop key skills—social, emotional and academic.
In between helping students learn and building their confidence, we work with our team and school leaders to identify strategies and address concerns. We meet with our partner teacher to see how we, collectively, can help each student achieve everything they want.
When the school day ends, we get creative about activities and clubs that will spark new interests with students. Whether running a club for robotics, performing arts or coding, it is here that our AmeriCorps members' entrepreneurial spirit is given a chance to shine.
