City Year

They are making a difference with their lives!
They are serving their community and their country!
They are changing their world for the better!

City Year was founded in 1988 by Michael Brown and Alan Khazei, then-roommates at Harvard Law School, who felt strongly that young people in service could be a powerful resource for addressing our nation's most pressing issues. Over the years, City Year has been built on the belief that one person can make a difference, and with the vision that one day service will be a common expectation - and a real opportunity - for citizens all around the world.

City Year Boston, a proud member of Americorps, is currently recruiting for 160 powerful and dedicated young leaders to join our Corps from September 2004 to June 2005. This amazing opportunity is located in the historically cosmopolitan city of Boston. You will receive $182.00 per week and upon your completion of service, $4725 education award (scholarship) is given to you to apply toward an accredited college or trade school. Addition benefits your will receive are: Medical coverage, MBTA Pass, $1200 in Timberland Gear, child care voucher (if needed), waived SAT and college application fees, and financial management training.

Your ten months will be filled with meeting and working on teams with other young people ages 16 to 25 from diverse economic, racial, and geographical backgrounds for a year of full-time leadership development and delivering powerful service to their communities. City Year corps members engage in a variety of activities to meet critical needs in their communities. They are primarily focused on the education and development of youth, serving as teachers and mentors for children in partnership with public schools, organizing and running after-school programs and curricula on issues including Domestic Violence Prevention, Environmental, and Diversity. In the end, you will learn what “putting idealism to work” means in running a non-profit that embodies pride in their corps, quality in their service, and commitment to their ideals.

Every day, corps members work with the spirit of idealism, the discipline of hard work, the purpose of shared goals. During the ten-month program, Corps members are also responsible for leading children in signature City Year programs including Young Heroes, a leadership development program for middle school students, and Camp City Year , a weeklong recreational and service learning program offered during students' school breaks.

The City Year corps embodies the ideals of City Year and its belief in the power of young people to effect positive, lasting social change, and the pride of representing their generation.

Whether you are a college freshman, senior, or planning on Medical or Law school, this experience will provide the opportunity for you to apply your knowledge, enhance your skills, and help you develop a better understanding of differences and valuing the diversity in people.
