News: City Year

April 23, 2014 - 2:45pm

Graduating seniors? Did you know that, as you are getting ready to graduate from one of the best universities in the world, every 26 seconds a student drops out of high school?

City Year is a nonprofit organization dedicated to education and fighting these staggering dropout numbers. Corps members commit to ten months of service in high need schools in one of City Year?s 25 locations across the U.S. Corps members work with the teachers in the classroom to support the students by focusing on attendance, behavior, and course performance, the three indicators of a student at risk of dropping out.

To serve as a 2014-2015 corps member, submit an application by either of the two remaining deadlines of February 15 or April 30. For additional information or any questions, please like the Bruins for City Year Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/CityYearBruins for updates on upcoming information sessions!
