City Year Los Angeles

City Year helps students and schools succeed. Fueled by national service, City Year partners with public schools in 29 urban, high-need communities across the U.S. and internationally to help bridge the gap between what students need and what most urban schools are resourced to provide. City Year recruits a diverse group of young adults to serve as AmeriCorps members in schools all day, every day—as tutors, mentors, and role models. In partnership with teachers, City Year AmeriCorps members provide academic and social-emotional support to students who need them most, provide classroom support, and contribute to a positive school culture and climate. A 2015 study found that City Year’s partner schools are two to three times more likely to improve on state tests in math and English than schools without City Year. A proud member of the AmeriCorps national service network, City Year is supported by public and private funding.
