The AmeriCorps programs listed below who value the experience and skills of City Year corps members and alumni, and encourage members of the City Year community to apply.

Note to currently serving corps members:  Please compare the Start Date for the program(s) in which you are interested to your City Year graduation date. Corps members must avoid applying to programs and locations with a conflict, since being accepted into and beginning a program that starts before your City Year graduation could mean losing your AmeriCorps Education Award and other alumni benefits. 



Jumpstart recruits college students to work with preschool-age children on language, literacy, and social-emotional skills that prepare them to succeed in kindergarten and beyond. Jumpstart members serve 10-12 hours a week in local early childhood centers, partnered with a small group of children, and working on a team with other college students. For those eligible, some college students can potentially earn Federal Work-Study, course credit, and a Segal AmeriCorps Education Award in the process. Gain valuable skills and experience, earn Federal Work-Study, and help prepare our youngest learners for lifelong success!

Student Conservation Association
As part of an SCA Corps Program, you’ll have the chance to work together with a team of other young people to accomplish targeted conservation goals. 

Many Corps Programs take place in the backcountry, where members build trails, prevent forest fires, or restore critical habitat. Teams typically live together in a cabin or other central location and work on “hitches” — short-term, focused work trips guided by SCA field leaders.

Other Corps Programs work in urban or rural communities, where members team up to conduct environmental education or public outreach. Members may live together at one site, or work at individual sites within the same region.

Whether you are working in the backcountry or in the local community, SCA Corps Programs give you the opportunity to join up with other young people who share your passion for the outdoors, and gain connections with agency partners in the field. Corps positions range from 3 to 12 months, and are open to high school graduates ages 18 and up.
