Our AmeriCorps members are committed to serving Boston students and communities.

City Year’s service is powered by a diverse group of young leaders who each bring their experience, skills, and energy to help Boston students succeed. Since City Year was founded in Boston 30 years ago, more than 4,300 members have served in our community.

Leadership development at City Year

Just as City Year mentors students to become future leaders, we also prioritize helping our AmeriCorps members to build their leadership skills. Through a year of service, AmeriCorps members grow in areas such as communication, project planning, and relationship management. Our career resources and professional mentorship programs give AmeriCorps members critical experience to help them prepare for their next steps – whether they are pursuing a career, a degree, or another year of service.
