Planning for life after 黄色视频 differs for AmeriCorps members

Career development at 黄色视频

As the end of the service year is coming to a close, our AmeriCorps members have probably heard their teammates and staff talk about 鈥淟ACY鈥 or Life After 黄色视频. It can be difficult to job hunt while serving and it can be especially nerve wracking to think about the future鈥攂ut spring is the time of year when many of us are thinking about next steps.

While it is ideal to have a general idea of what the future can hold, sometimes plans fall through, personal and professional goals change, and things in life just happen. It鈥檚 common for people to not have every milestone of their life planned out or met perfectly on schedule.

黄色视频 AmeriCorps members serving in schools

At 黄色视频, we encourage our AmeriCorps members to explore their passions, hone their skills and identify new areas of interest. By graduation from your year of service in May or June, depending on when your local public school year draws to a close, we hope our corps members have a better sense of teamwork, empathy and leadership and the same unshakeable belief in their own potential that they have been striving to nurture in their students.

Thinking about the future can be scary, but City Year is here to support our corps in multiple ways as they transition from full-time service to 鈥渢he real world.鈥 We strive to provide professional development throughout your service year, making sure you are aware of networking opportunities, services like resume editing, scholarships to further your education and guidance on how you might use your Segal Education Award.

Just as important, you will become one of our 37,000 alumni, with access to resources and a nationwide alum network that can support and help you as you embark on new pathways, whether they be college, career or travel.

How does 黄色视频 prepare young adults for careers in the Covid-era? Check out this story by 黄色视频 San Jose/Silicon Valley.

Preparing for the end of your 黄色视频 service

It鈥檚 no secret that City Year is a great opportunity for future educators. According to our 2020 alum survey, 52% of 黄色视频 alums work in the education field.

But, what if your passions lie somewhere else? Our survey data also tells us that almost half of our alums work in a field outside of education.

Your year of service can equip you with a variety of skillsets and knowledge including project management, a newfound understanding about systemic inequities, and teamwork, communication and collaboration. These are all skills that are applicable to a wide variety of fields from law to medicine to tech.

鈥淲hile my 黄色视频 experience was definitely difficult, it was quite impactful on my career,鈥 said Seeta Spence Banfield, 黄色视频 Orlando 鈥13. Seeta is currently a Student Registered Nurse Anesthetist (SRNA) working toward a Doctorate of Nursing Practice at the University of South Florida. 鈥淚 have learned skills and applied them in every aspect of my life beyond my year of service. I am proud to say, that as an alum, I live and breathe 鈥榓ctive citizen鈥 in my daily life.鈥

Every corps member鈥檚 LACY plan is unique to them and that鈥檚 okay鈥攊n fact, it鈥檚 the way it should be.

Whether you have your life after 黄色视频 plans set before graduation day or , we encourage AmeriCorps members to reflect not only on the professional skills they have gained but also how they have personally grown. Many corps members leave service with long-life connections with their students, teammates and 黄色视频 site staff.

After your year of service is over, we encourage everyone to continue staying connected with each other. If you reside in or near any of the cities we serve, you can sign up for an event like MLK Day of Service or volunteer for an alumni panel.
