City Year

City Year, an Americorps program, offers 11 months of community service, leadership development and civic engagement at sites across the US. Corps members serve as teacher's aides, run after-school or service-learning programs, and teach health and public safety programs. City Year corps members provide individualized support to at-risk students, while also establishing an overall positive learning environment in the schools throughout America that need us the most.
