Explore a Year of Service with City Year

Information Session:

June 23, 2020 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm EST

City Year helps students and schools succeed. Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members provide support to students, classrooms and the whole school, helping to ensure that students in systemically under-resourced schools are prepared with the skills and mindsets to thrive and contribute to their community.

City Year partners with public schools in 29 communities across the U.S. and through international affiliates in the U.K. and South Africa. A 2015 study shows that schools that partner with City Year were up to two-to-three times more likely to improve math and English assessments.

A proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network, City Year is supported by the Corporation for National and Community Service, local school districts, and private philanthropy.

Do you believe that literacy is a human right?

Please join a Handshake event for The Literacy Lab on May 7th at 5 PM to listen to a live webinar presented by one of their Recruitment Associates, Aja. There, you will hear about their mission to ensure all students – no matter where they are from – can become proficient readers (with your help!) and pursue life long success. They will also go over the basic aspects of their program and what it means to serve as a tutor for an academic year. There will also be a Q & A portion of the presentation, so come with questions!

Questions before the webinar begins? Reach out to them at recruitment@theliteracylab.org for more information. We hope to see you there!
