City Year is still hiring for a GAP year after graduation.
When schools reopen in the fall, our students will need corps members like you to support them and provide a sense of belonging, alongside our communities. When you help a student find their strengths, you discover your own. The skills you gain and what you learn about yourself along the way will prepare you for who you want to be.

What You’ll Do
Your primary responsibility as a City Year AmeriCorps member is to support students as a full-time tutor and mentor in a systemically under-resourced school. You will help students learn about themselves, what they’re interested in and what they’re capable of doing. This position is an 11-month commitment where you and a team of 6-12 AmeriCorps members will support your students and your school Monday-Friday, for the entire year. In addition to tutoring and mentoring during the school day, you and your team will lead after school programs and activities that improve the overall school environment. Your role is to create an environment where students can thrive. The days are long, but so worth it.
