City Year was founded with a core belief: that uniting and empowering diverse teams of idealistic young people and charging them with addressing some of our country's most difficult challenges can change the world for the better.
City Year's mission is to build democracy through citizen service, civic leadership and social entrepreneurship.
What We Do
City Year helps students and schools succeed. Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members provide support to students, classrooms and the whole school, helping to ensure that students in systemically under-resourced schools receive a high-quality education that prepares them with the skills and mindsets to thrive and contribute to their community.
