"City Year, an AmeriCorps program with a 15-year history in the District, is focusing efforts to improve graduation rates. The program has 158 volunteers working in 13 D.C. public schools, including some of the high schools with the highest dropout rates, as well as elementary and middle schools that feed into them."
