City Year

City Year is an education-focused organization founded in 1988 dedicated to helping students and schools succeed. City Year partners with public schools in 27 urban, high-poverty communities across the U.S. and through international affiliates in the U.K. and Johannesburg, South Africa. 

Our culture is the air we breathe - it is the set of values, structures and practices that creates an environment in which idealism can be successfully practiced. Our unique, intentional culture and values powers our impact in schools and provides an immersive context for developing leaders.
