City Year – Building the Nation’s Urban Graduation Pipeline

June 13, 2012

The following post is from our June Career Newsletter Employer sponsor, City Year.

City Year is an education-focused, nonprofit organization that partners with public schools to help keep students in school and on track to graduate. In communities across the United States and through two international affiliates, this innovative public-private partnership brings together teams of young AmeriCorps members who commit to a year of full-time service in schools. Corps members support students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance through in-class tutoring, mentoring, and after school programs.
