SXSW EDU 2021 City Year

Vote to help City Year win a spot at SXSW EDU!

SXSW EDU, one of the biggest education conferences of the year, is allowing the public to vote NOW on the panelists it will present in 2021!

Help City Year secure an opportunity to share about the role of AmeriCorps members as student success coaches, how they’re supporting students and teachers during COVID-19 disruptions, and the potential impact of expanding the student success coach model to more schools.

Votes make up about 30% of SXSW’s decision about panels, so please show your support. Your colleagues and our partners are counting on you! We’d like to repeat last year’s success, when your votes helped City Year win a coveted spot for the first time ever to present a panel at SXSW EDU!
