Our mission City Year helps students and schools succeed, while preparing the next generation of civically engaged leaders who can work across lines of difference. Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members provide support to students, classrooms and the whole school. Schools that partner with City Year are up to two to three times more likely to improve in English and math assessments, and the more time students spend with AmeriCorps members, the more they improve on social, emotional and academic skills— skills that help students thrive in school and contribute to their community.

Mentoring

Our AmeriCorps Members are a diverse group of young adults ages 17-25 dedicating a year of service to Boston Public Schools. The Mentoring Program aims to give corps members a one-on-one relationship with a mentor by creating matches based on a corps member’s professional goals. The program runs from January – June, with applications typically launching in November.
