Program areas at City Year

In-School Service In Fiscal Year 2020, more than 95% of City Year's 3,717 full-time participants served on diverse teams in schools. Most of their 4,549,606 service hours were spent as tutors, mentors, and role models helping children in high-poverty schools stay in school and on track to graduate. As near-peers, corps members are uniquely able to help improve student attendance, behavior, and coursework - which research confirms are indicators of a student's likelihood of graduating from high school. See schedule O for continuation.
Physical Service All City Year locations host large-scale service events throughout the year, led by corps and staff. In Fiscal Year 2020, 10,852 citizens volunteered 55,622 hours in projects including painting murals, refurbishing schools, creating play spaces, planting community gardens, and revitalizing community centers. A physical service project completed by a City Year led team can powerfully transform a school environment or neighborhood, both by visibily improving the space with the immediate results, and also by inspiring participants to volunteer again.
Youth Civic Leadership The skills and opportunities City Year corps members received during their year of service help the more than 33,000 alumni become leaders for life who - as established by third party research - vote more, volunteer more, and are more civically engaged than their similarly-situated peers who do not do a year of service. They share their passion for civic engagement by leading students in activities that help the participants gain a better understanding of challenges facing their communities and how they can help address them. See Schedule O for continuation.
