Organization Description 


City Year unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world. As tutors, mentors and role models, these diverse young leaders help children stay in school and on track, and transform schools and communities across the United States, as well as through international affiliates in Johannesburg, South Africa and London, England. Just as important, during their year of service corps members develop civic leadership skills they can use throughout a lifetime of community service. Major corporations and businesses participate in our mission by serving as strategic partners, team sponsors, and national leadership sponsors.

As a corps member, you will help students stay on track and get back on track to graduate by improving their course performance, attendance, and behavior.  You will provide one-on-one or small group tutoring and mentoring, monitor attendance, support positive behavior, lead after-school programs and organize activities that improve the overall school environment.  As young leaders between the ages of 17 and 24, corps members are uniquely able to help students and schools succeed.
