Our Approach

Tapping into New York's Potential

At City Year, we’re working to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support students actually need, and what their schools are designed to provide. Our teams of AmeriCorps members help students reach 10th grade on time and on track, making them three times more likely to graduate.

Our Impact

Powerful Results

During the 2015 – 2016 school year our AmeriCorps members served Tier 1 students in 27 New York City public schools using our Whole School, Whole Child model. Along the way, we measured our success.

Our Corps

City Year New York deploys 257 highly skilled AmeriCorps members to serve in 24 elementary, middle and high schools. Each school has a team of diverse and talented 18-25 year-olds helping in the school community. In FY17, nearly a third of our corps, 32%, are serving in an area where they are from. Together, this team positively impacts thousands of students every day.
