City Year unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world.
As tutors, mentors, and role models, these young leaders make a difference in the lives of children and transform schools and neighborhoods across the United States and in South Africa.
City Year is a proud member of AmeriCorps.
Mission: City Year was founded upon the simple and powerful idea that young people can change the world, and our mission is to build democracy through citizen service, civic leadership, and social entrepreneurship. Service is the foundation upon which we can engage citizens to benefit the common good, and it is through our corps members work in schools that they make a difference in the lives of youth and develop the skills critical to becoming socially responsible, civic-minded leaders for the next generation.
