An Americorps program, City Year seeks to demonstrate, improve and promote the concept of national service as a means for building a stronger democracy. Founded in Boston in 1988, City Year has established programs in Boston; Chicago; Cleveland; Columbia, SC; Columbus; Detroit; New Hampshire; New York; Philadelphia; Rhode Island; San Antonio; San Jose; Seattle/King County and Washington, D.C. City Year unites a diverse group of 17 to 24 year-old young people for a year of full-time, rigorous community service, leadership development, and civic engagement. Corps members serve as teachers' aides in public schools, run after-school programs, do physical service, run service-learning programs, and teach health and public-safety curricula. Corps members receive a weekly stipend and upon graduation are eligible for additional funds toward college tuition or job training.
