University Partnership: Wheelock College

Wheelock College

City Year is proud to partner with Wheelock College, a four-year, private institution that is focused on improving the lives of children and families through its programs in education, arts and sciences, social work, child life, and juvenile justice and youth advocacy, offering $15,000 tuition scholarships.


Since 1888, Wheelock College has been providing a transformational education to students passionate about making the world a better place -- especially for children and families. While most of our students elect to work in the helping professions of education, social work, child life, and juvenile justice and youth advocacy, many pursue, and make exceptional contributions to, a wide variety of professions. Wheelock College is the place for students who want to change their world and improve the lives of children and families through their careers as leaders, advocates and professionals.
