City Year San Jose/Silicon Valley
Contact: Jesus Salazar
We are City Year. We are challenging the educational status quo in Silicon Valley to ensure that local students have an excellent education and skills to pursue and thrive in careers within local tech companies. When students thrive, we all benefit.
City Year is a non-profit that tackles educational inequity in our nation while giving young people an amazing transformative experience. Those who hear the call to service serve in schools that are in most need of our help. They serve as mentors sparking hope each and everyday as well as receive an extensive amount of coaching, professional development and get exposed to different career pathways throughout their service year. City Year is an extraordinary experience that they will always take with them wherever their career takes them. These Americorps members also receive great benefits during their service year such as a living stipend, a 6k education award, food allowance, health care and free public transportation!
