City Year Denver
Agency: City Year Denver
Areas Served: Denver
Program Description: At City Year, we believe education has the power to help every child reach his or her potential. Working to bridge the gap between the support that students actually need and what schools are designed to provide, our City Year AmeriCorps members work in under-resourced schools across 28 cities to identify students who are at risk of not graduating on time with their peers. City Year AmeriCorps members work full-time for 11 months, striving to make a lasting impact on students’ lives and ultimately increase the graduation rate by providing students with extra academic, emotional, and social support. As a City Year AmeriCorps member, you’ll be a tutor. A mentor. A coach. A team captain. A team player. A big brother or sister. A mediator. The list goes on.
