Hey, guess what? As a City Year corps member or alumni, you receive 15% off Kaplan Test Prep courses for GMAT, GRE, LSAT, MCAT, DAT, OAT, and PCAT and tons of free educational resources. Check out your Kaplan Member Benefits page for more exclusive discounts and offerings!

LACY Vision: City Year alumni are prepared to lead on transformational change on social problems and are in high demand by universities and employers.

Developing strong alumni starts at the beginning of service.  The experience you gain here has the power to build your personal brand as a Big Citizen and define the leadership you bring to your next endeavor. 

Through the next year, it’s our goal to provide you with resources to enhance your leadership after City Year.  We’ll do this two ways:

  • Assist in connecting your service experience to its overall impact on your leadership and career development
  • Provide access to partnerships and resources which will further your opportunities because you belong to the City Year community

The next step falls to you: just as you will expect your students to own their success through growth mindset, we expect you to develop a LACY mindset.  We will point you in the direction of resources to build your LACY and expect you will use these tools to determine your path.

Building LACY won’t happen all at once, and we can’t wait until the end of your service to get started.   Each newsletter will come with a new habit to develop.  If you’re already doing it, great!  Find a way to enhance your use of that habit.

LACY Habit 1 Read email communications in a timely manner to find the answers you need. 

This eNewsletter is an example of the information you’ll receive from us regularly.  Find the information that connects to your LACY and decide how it will impact your development.  This habit will not only connect you to LACY resources, but is also a necessary skill for nearly every career path after service. 

Welcome to City Year!  Let’s get started on your LACY.

Join the Future Educator's Network

Starting this year, City Year is launching an eNewsletter to provide resources to our community of corps and alumni interested in pursuing a career in teaching.  Communication will be sent a few times per month to update you on City Year's role in the classroom, partners who want to hire City Year alumni, and to share resources to enhance your teaching career.

Signing up takes less than a minute, and everyone who joins by October 1 will be entered in a drawing to win a City Year alumni hoodie!
