City Year
Greater Boston

While Boston’s nickname is The Hub, known for being a vibrant center for academia, business, tech and medicine, some students in Greater Boston face significant challenges every day. Together we can help students build on their strengths and thrive.

What do we do?

City Year Greater Boston provides a powerful double bottom line: improved outcomes for students in under-resourced schools and the cultivation of the next generation of leaders through our alum.
