City Year is proud to partner with the Green Dot Public Schools so our alumni can continue to lead on transformational change on pressing social problems. This partnership reflects the shared visions and values of both organizations, and their belief that young people can keep students on track to graduate from high school and pursue post-secondary education. City Year strengthens an applicant’s competitiveness and chances for being selected for the Adelante Credentialing Program.



Green Dot Public Schools is a non-profit network of public charter schools, free and open to all, with a mission to help transform public education so that ALL students graduate prepared for college, leadership, and life. Purposefully locating its schools in historically underserved communities lacking in high-quality educational opportunities, Green Dot seeks to close pernicious discrepancies in access and opportunity between low-income students and their more affluent peers.

The Adelante Credentialing Program, through Green Dot, is a single subject teacher credentialing program which allows cohort members to earn a credential while teaching. In partnership with Loyola Marymount University, the Adelante Program offers coursework that directly aligns with our schools, students, and daily work.
