CityYear showed me how to be a leader in social change. My corps members and I worked in schools organizing after-school programs designed to engage, inspire and create. Outside of our assigned schools, we spent time inside the city conducting community service programs from painting murals to building playgrounds. The true spirit of CityYear was best felt working at the office where through office rituals, we learned the tricks of the non-profit trade. Overall, this Americorps program was a fun, knowledgeable and rewarding experience.

If you are looking for a job that gets you directly working with our youth, City Year is right for you. But, I wish City Year would have been more transparent about what the job actually entails and what you would be doing on a daily basis. Other than that, staff is great and really cares about your success!
The mission is amazing and I love the work I do in the classroom. However, the work/life balance is almost nonexistent, management infrastructure needs to be totally updated, and the company needs to provide more social-emotional teaching resources to corps members.
