City Year New York
About our company
At City Year, we’re working to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support the students in the communities actually need and what their schools are designed to provide. In doing so, we're helping to increase graduation rates across the country, and making an impact in the lives of the students we serve. Our progress can be attributed to a unique, holistic approach, which we call Whole School Whole Child. It’s based around a group of carefully selected, highly trained young adults—our AmeriCorps members—who provide individualized support to at-risk students, while also establishing an overall positive learning environment in the schools throughout America that need us the most.
