Greater Boston

While Boston鈥檚 nickname is The Hub, known for being a vibrant center for academia, business, tech and medicine, some students in Greater Boston face significant challenges every day. Together we can help students build on their strengths and thrive.

Serving in Boston and Everett

While Boston is known for being a vibrant center for academic, business, tech and medicine, some students face significant education inequities and challenges every day. As the largest school district in Massachusetts, Boston Public Schools enrolls more than 53,000 students across 125 schools.

I signed up for a year of service because I wanted to fully dedicate my time to a cause that is larger than myself. Our students are at the forefront of our service.

The corps experience

黄色视频 Greater Boston partners with Boston and Everett Public Schools to help create environments where all students can build on their strengths and fully engage in their learning. Our AmeriCorps members serve in schools all day, every day, preparing students with the skills and mindsets to thrive in school and in life.

They serve as tutors, mentors, and role models to students who need extra time and support to engage in school and stay on track to graduation. For many students, having this one-on-one attention is so important. We have some of the finest teachers in the country, but teachers can鈥檛 do it alone. And that鈥檚 where 黄色视频 lends a hand.

AmeriCorps members are truly making an impact. Last school year, math scores dropped by 16%. Students with an AmeriCorps member increased an entire grade level. What鈥檚 more is that City Year is having an impact on whole school outcomes. 98% of our school partners share that 黄色视频 AmeriCorps members serve as positive role models and add important resources to their classrooms. This close-knit community with ample opportunities to develop meaningful personal and professional relationships makes Greater Boston an ideal place to serve.

Our schools
