Whole School Whole Child: Informed by research, rooted in relationships

City Year helps students and schools succeed by delivering holistic support to students, classrooms and the whole school. Drawing from our 30-years of experience in human and youth development, we are committed to supporting the development of both our students and our AmeriCorps members.

Diverse, trained teams of eight to 12 AmeriCorps members serve full time in schools as student success coaches, who partner with classroom teachers to help students cultivate key social, emotional and academic skills that are important in school and in life—whether that’s mastering fractions or learning to work in teams. AmeriCorps members tutor students one-on-one or in small groups; help students stay focused in class; organize school wide events designed to enhance school culture and climate; and run afterschool programs.
