The Challenge

We know all students can succeed. At the same time, more than 10 million children live in neighborhoods of concentrated poverty. These students face adversity that interferes with their ability to arrive at school every day ready to learn.

Our Approach

City Year helps to close gaps in high-need schools by supporting students' academic and social-emotional development while also providing schools with the additional capacity to enhance school culture and climate.

Our Impact


City Year provides a powerful double bottom line: improved outcomes for students in high-need schools and the cultivation of the next generation of leaders through our alumni.

Research and Publications

City Year is committed to using data, research and evaluations to help us measure and understand our impact, identify best practices and inform our approach to improving outcomes for students.
