City Year is an amazing nation-wide organization that has finally found its way into the Denver Public School system. What is City Year, you ask? The organization is about teams of diverse young people called corps members who serve full-time in schools for 10 months working to improve student attendance, behavior and course performance in English and math.
As tutors, mentors and role models, corps members are uniquely able to help students and schools succeed through:
- Academic Support: Provide one-on-one or small group tutoring before, during and after school
- Attendance and Positive Behavior Encouragement: Lead energetic morning greetings, make attendance and positive phone calls home and lead mentor groups
- Community and School Improvements: Organize and lead activities, celebrations and projects to improve the community and school environment which includes performing physical service such as: painting murals, planting community gardens, renovating schools and refurbishing community centers
