Our Approach

Our Approach

At City Year, we believe education has the power to help every child reach his or her potential. However, in high-poverty communities there are external factors and obstacles students are faced with every day that can interfere with their ability to arrive to school ready to learn.

Our Impact

Measured Success

Our AmeriCorps members partner with five Kansas City schools to provide research-based interventions in attendance, behavior and course performance to students who need additional support to stay on track. Along the way, we measure our results.

Our Corps

Highly Skilled Near-Peer mentors

Each year, City Year Kansas City recruits and trains 58 full-time, near-peer AmeriCorps members, partnering with six urban schools to serve over 3,300 middle and high school students.
