City Year is an education-focused nonprofit organization founded in 1988 that partners with public schools to help keep students in school and on track to graduate. In 25 communities across the United States and through two international affiliates, this innovative public-private partnership brings together teams of young AmeriCorps members who commit to a year of full-time service in schools. Corps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring and after-shook programs.
