City Year AmeriCorps

Program Description:

City Year unites diverse young adults to serve on a team for 10 months. City Year's goals are to generate transformative community service, break down social barriers, inspire citizens to civic action, develop new leaders, and improve and promote the concept of voluntary national service. Corps members will provide one-on-one literacy tutoring to Chicago Public School elementary students, after school programming and a leadership development Saturday program for middle school students. After school programs include homework assistance and programs to strengthen their leadership skills with an emphasis on cultural awareness.
