WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

  • Every 26 seconds, a student in America gives up on school. 
  • High school dropouts are three times more likely than college graduates to be unemployed. 
  • High school dropouts are eight times more likely to be in jail or prison than high school graduates. 
  • Barely 50% of African American students and less than 66% of Hispanic students will graduate with their class.
  • The 12 million students projected to drop out over the next decade will cost the nation $3 trillion. 


HOW CITY YEAR CAN HELP

Teams of City Year corps members are deployed into under-served, New York City Schools to keep students in school and on track to graduate high school. Trained corps members collaborate with school administrators and staff to provide one-on-one tutoring, mentoring and after school support to make an impact for the students that are at-risk of dropping out. The City Year New York Alumni Board is working to raise $10,000 through this campaign in order to sponsor a team of ten corps members to serve for an entire month in a school.
