We are thrilled to share that nearly 25% of our 2017-2018 City Year AmeriCorps members will be returning for a second and even third year of service to continue to change the world, one student at a time. For the rest of our corps, the future is also very bright! After City Year, there are many industries and career paths that our AmeriCorps members will embark on. Here are a few incredible journeys:
“My post-service plan is that this fall I’ll be attending USC’s graduate program for social work. I’m really excited to continue on the path of working with and for others and to keep working with kids in the future!”
- Emily Harris, AmeriCorps Team Leader at Jefferson High School in South L.A.
“My post-service plans are to go into teaching at a high school through the District Internship program. I will be looking for a teaching position for 9th grade ELA in South Central LA to continue supporting the community. I'm excited to continue the work I started in City Year but now as a teacher!”
- Carlos Cortes, Second Year AmeriCorps and District Intern at Julian Nava Preparatory Academy in South L.A.
"My post-service plan: teaching English in Uganda with the Peace Corps!"
- Connor Donnelly, AmeriCorps member at Miguel Contreras Learning Complex in Pico-Union
"My post-service plans are to attend graduate school for my Master of Arts in English Literature at Newcastle University in Newcastle, UK! I’m so excited to spend a year in a new environment and surrounded by different cultures.”
- Sarah Simmons, AmeriCorps member at Jefferson High School in South L.A.
"After a year of service with City Year, I will be taking my talents to train and apply for grad school where I hope to receive my Masters and teaching credential. I want to teach Biology and Environmental Science. In the meantime, I look forward to substitute teaching."
- Peter Ly, AmeriCorps member at Miguel Contreras Learning Complex in Pico-Union
