City Year

Mission

City Year's mission is focused on advancing educational equity and developing diverse leaders who can work across lines of difference to create positive change.

Program Description

City Year's AmeriCorps members serving as Student Success Coaches (SSCs) are diverse young adults who serve full-time on teams in systemically under-resourced K-12 schools. They implement City Year's core Whole School Whole Child program, forming near-peer, developmental relationships and providing research-based, integrated social, emotional and academic supports for students, combined with whole classroom and school supports to enable rich learning environments. City Year's SSCs partner with teachers to provide supplemental capacity and personalize the learning environment. They use youth development strategies and student data on social emotional skills and early warning indicators of high school graduation and post-secondary success, such as attendance, behavior and ELA and math course performance, to accelerate students' holistic development.
