City Year – awesome job!

City Year Now Hiring AmeriCorps Members to Start July/August 2021. Deadline March 5th.

At City Year, we believe that all children can succeed, even though access to educational opportunity varies due to system inequity in our country. Each year, we hire over 3,000 people to serve as AmeriCorps Members with us for 10 months, working in under-served public schools to help balance the scales. In 29 locations across the country, they work on teams and in collaboration with our public-school partners to provide additional adult support to students who need it. 

Serving as tutors and mentors, these AmeriCorps Members use a research-based approach to assist teachers and get their students back on track towards graduation. During their gap year of service, City Year AmeriCorps Members receive a living stipend, health benefits, professional development, student loan forbearance, an education award of approximately $6,000, and access to a variety of graduate school scholarships through our University Partnerships program.
