City Year is an education-focused, nonprofit organization founded in 1988 that partners with public schools and teachers to help keep students in school and on track to succeed. In 25 communities across the United States and through two international affiliates in South Africa and the UK, this innovative public-private partnership brings together teams of young AmeriCorps members who commit to a year of full-time service in schools. City Year Corps members provide individual support to students who need extra care and attention, focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs.
