At City Year, we believe that all children can succeed, and that student potential is limitless. However, 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 $6,495, and access to a variety of graduate school scholarships through our University Partnerships program.
City Year is currently in the process of hiring people from all majors to serve as AmeriCorps Members during the 2022-2023 school year, with full-time positions starting next July and August. Our next application deadline is coming up on December 17th. Applications take less than 45 minutes to complete and include the ability to choose which city you wish to serve in! Interested candidates can complete the application at www.cityyear.org. If you would like more information, please fill out this form or email Jake Drollinger at firstname.lastname@example.org
