Powerful Results

Recently our corps members served students in 21 Boston schools using our Whole School, Whole Child model. Along the way, we measured our success. Here are the results:

Increased attendance

We coached 1,625 students, helping them get to school on time

Better behavior

91% of teachers said AmeriCorps members created an effective, positive learning environment

Academic results

72% of 4th graders who were tutored made one year of academic growth
  • 92% of elementary school students receiving City Year literacy tutoring improved performance on literacy assessments. 
  • 77% of middle school students failing English at the start to the year were passing by the end of the year. 
  • Students who received at least one month of City Year attendance monitoring achieved an average daily attendance rate of nearly 92% for the year.
