City Year is an education focused, nonprofit organization that unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service to keep students in school and on track to graduation. At City Year’s 25 locations across the United States and two international affiliates, teams of highly-trained corps members serve full-time in schools as tutors, mentors and role models. By focusing on attendance, behavior and course performance, which identify students who are at risk of dropping out, corps members are uniquely able to help students and schools succeed.
City Year is recruiting idealistic 17-24 year-olds to spend a year making a positive impact in schools while gaining valuable career skills. The next application deadline for the 2014-2015 school year is Saturday, February 15th.
