One out of five students in Little Rock and North Little Rock drop out. The consequences are real: Students who drop out are eight times more likely to become incarcerated and three times more likely to be unemployed. When a student drops out of school it has a lasting effect on our communities.
You can help turn around Little Rock’s most disadvantaged schools. Your support helps City Year’s AmeriCorps members tutor and mentor students, reclaim public spaces, and organize important after-school programs.
City Year is making headlines for our work within the schools and communities where we serve. Here you can read what others have to say about us on a local and national level, and how we are impacting lives in the classroom and beyond.
