Making an Impact in City Year Intervention Spaces
"It has been truly inspiring to see the effect that these academic interventions have had on students at Rogers. Each time my teammates and I meet with a small group of students, we build stronger relationships with those students. Students learn best when they have a relationship with their City Year that goes beyond academics. Being able to see the way that students ask questions, confide in corps members and adjust their attitude and work ethic, is a testament to, and a reminder of, the importance of the relationships we build each day with students."
