City Year

City Year works to bridge the gap in high-poverty communities between the support that students actually need, and what their schools are designed and resourced to provide. In doing so, City Year is helping to increase graduation rates across the country, and changing the lives of the students served.


City Year Corps Members at Gompers Elementary: Funding from this grant supports nine City Year Corps Members working at Gompers Elementary in the Brightmoor neighborhood of Detroit. Currently, 71 City Year participants are working in 11 schools across the city.

Deepening Third Grade Interventions and Support: This grant underwrites increased efforts to reach third grade students across Detroit by funding both in-person, one-on-one interventions with an increased number of students, as well as developing specialized training for City Year corps members.
