Senior Corps

** Applications to serve for 2015-2016 service year are due:  March 1, 2015 **

As a City Year alum or currently serving corps member you understand how challenging and rewarding a year of service can be.  Many of you have helped students get back on track to graduate by improving their course performance, attendance and behavior.  You have provided tutoring, mentoring, monitored attendance, supported positive behavior, lead after-school programs and organized activities that improve the overall school environment. As young leaders between the ages of 17 and 24, corps members are uniquely able to help students and schools succeed.

Please consider applying to become a Senior Corps or Second Year Corps Member. The opportunity to serve another year is an incredible step towards your professional future and possibly, a career at City Year. Our Chief Marketing Officer, Gillian Smith, believes that you have what it takes to lead powerfully. Watch her message here:
