Building a more equitable future. At City Year, we believe that all students can succeed and that developing the skills and mindsets of children and young adults contributes to strong, vibrant communities—outcomes that benefit all of us.

City Year has pushed me to develop as a leader by challenging me to step out of my comfort zone, which is why I believe a big part of my role is to empower, inspire, and motivate others to reach their highest potential. The students we serve deserve to feel supported through this most challenging time, which is why COVID-19 has only added to my sense of urgency to transform myself and those around me.
Social-Emotional Support for Students is Needed Now More Than Ever
Students may be back in school, but they’re still reeling from the loss of learning and social development after 18 months of remote learning and social isolation due to the pandemic.
“Our students have a City Year AmeriCorps member in their corners every day helping them with academics and social-emotional support to navigate the return to school,” says Sandra Cano, the executive director of City Year L.A.
Helping these students has never been more urgent.
Please support City Year AmeriCorps members. They are the human capital that makes what City Year does possible, Cano says. City Year recently increased the amount of money it pays its AmeriCorps members from $17,400 a year to $25,000
