Challenge

More than one million students give up on school each year. 50 percent of those dropouts come from just 12 percent of schools. City Year AmeriCorps members serve where the need is greatest. Of the 238 schools we serve, three quarters are among the lowest performing 5 percent in their state.

Solution

City Year unites young people (ages 17-24) of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service to help students succeed in school and stay on-track to high school graduation. As tutors, mentors and role models, City Year's diverse leaders - corps members - are deployed in teams to work in low-income urban communities, transforming schools and neighborhoods and making a difference in the lives of underserved children.
Corps members, like Brandon, tutor one-on-one in small groups and during whole class activities as well as lead out-of-class extension activities that complement school instruction. City Year works in partnership with school districts to support their goals and provide the dedicated extra people required to make a difference with students who are at risk of dropping out. City Year corps members serve full-time in grades 3 through 9.

Long-Term Impact

Students who progress to 10th grade with their peers are four times more likely to graduate than students who fall behind.Our Long-Term Impact goal is to ensure 80% of the students in the schools City Year serves reach 10th grade on track and on time, serving the majority of at-risk students in the locations where City Year serves. City Year focuses that service in communities where the dropout challenge is most concentrated, ultimately serving two thirds of the nation's dropouts.
