City Year

City Year helps students and schools succeed. Fueled by national service, we deploy diverse teams of AmeriCorps members to work full-time alongside teachers in public schools, where they develop positive relationships with students that strengthen academic and social-emotional skills that drive success in school, work and life. A 2015 study shows that schools that partner with City Year were up to 2-3 times more likely to improve on math and English assessments.

The Red Nose Day Fund helps place teams of City Year AmeriCorps members in high-need communities across the United States. These AmeriCorps members provide tutoring, mentoring and school-wide support for kids to help them stay in school and on track to graduate, ready for college and career success.
