A Day in the Life of a City Year AmeriCorps Member | Tina’s Story

Check out Tina’s Story to see what a Day in the Life of a City Year AmeriCorps Member is all about! Like what you see? You can still apply throughout May and June to serve in the 2015-2016 school year!

When it comes to making an impact in the lives of the students and communities we serve, we wouldn’t be able to do it without the dedication and devotion of our corps members.

As a City Year AmeriCorps member, you’ll spend your 11 months serving hands-on with a small group of students to change their educational outcomes and their futures as a whole. The role is tremendously rewarding, but far from easy, which is why we’re so selective with our application process. In fact, only 1 in 4 applicants is chosen. To get a better idea of what you’ll be doing if you’re accepted as a corps member, take a look at a typical day below.

8:00 am greet students and them excited for the day.

8:15 am call any of my late or absent students and encourage them to come to school.
