San Jos茅/
Silicon Valley

San Jos茅 is home to an ethnically diverse community, booming technology companies and aspiring entrepreneurs. 黄色视频 San Jos茅/Silicon Valley works alongside teachers and community partners to support students across our city.

Serving in San Jos茅

While Silicon Valley is widely known for being a vibrant center for academia, business, tech and medicine, many students in East San Jos茅 and East Palo Alto do not have access to the learning environments and resources they need to thrive due to systemic inequities.

I serve to remind our students that they are capable. That their defeats during school are not due to their lack of intelligence, but due to a system that is not made for everyone... I serve to remind our students that they are beautiful even though society around them does not make them believe so.

Your corps experience

黄色视频 serves in schools that need our support as part of the solution to educational equity, specifically changing the narrative for student outcomes from this area and coaching students to meet their full potential.

City Year is partnered with Alum Rock Union School District in San Jos茅 and Ravenswood School District in East Palo Alto in creating equitable learning opportunities for all students and develop the city鈥檚 future leaders. AmeriCorps members support teachers and staff in delivering instruction that serves the development of the whole child and is responsive to the diverse racial, cultural and linguistic needs of San Jos茅 youth.

Our AmeriCorps members are truly making an impact in the schools we collaborate with. A family-oriented school community with numerous opportunities to develop both personally and professionally, San Jos茅 is an ideal place to serve. By engaging students, families and community partners, 黄色视频 helps students from East San Jos茅 and East Palo Alto graduate high school, college and career ready and persist into thriving careers in Silicon Valley.

Serving in San Jos茅 schools

Serving in schools throughout the East San Jos茅 and East Palo Alto area, every school site is quite special, not only because of the amazing students and families, but also because of the outdoor layout of most schools. With vibrant blacktop and outdoor spaces, students have plenty of room to play and be outside while having the best view of the beautiful foothills of the Santa Clara Valley in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Most schools are accessible via public transportation and there is an equal balance of AmeriCorps members who carpool in a vehicle or take the light rail and/or bus to commute to schools. Most AmeriCorps members live in South/East San Jos茅 with others commuting from other parts of Santa Clara County. In addition, many of the teachers and staff you will work with have served in the same school or within their school district for 10+ years, demonstrating their sincere dedication and love for this community.

Working on a team

Work with a committed and diverse group of 6-10 黄色视频 AmeriCorps members who share your passion for service and personal growth. As a team, you will have the opportunity to support students with their academic and social-emotional needs.

Each school team consists of an impact manager and team leader who provide coaching and guidance for all aspects of 黄色视频鈥檚 service in schools. An impact manager is a staff member who collaborates closely with school administration and staff to best identify where 黄色视频 support is needed. The team leader is a returning AmeriCorps member, often doing a second year of service, who provides direct coaching and strategies to AmeriCorps members related to working with students and school partners.

You will work as a team, all day and every day, forging powerful relationships with one another and your students. 黄色视频 teammates often become life-long friendships and connections after your service year experience.

Professional development

In addition to receiving robust training to prepare you for coaching and mentoring students, AmeriCorps members will receive opportunities to develop hard and soft skills necessary for their careers after 黄色视频. We have a dedicated staff member who develops monthly workshops about preparing for graduate school, resume writing, mock interviewing, networking and personal brand and teacher pathway programs. We are grateful for the support of our partner companies, nonprofits, and schools who help us bring this programming to our AmeriCorps members!

Community involvement

When you serve with 黄色视频 San Jos茅/Silicon Valley and wear the yellow jacket, you stand on the shoulders of 1,500 alumni who dedicated a year of service. In spaces such as schools, community landmarks and 黄色视频 partner facilities, you represent service-oriented values and civic engagement throughout the greater San Francisco Bay Area.
