City YearCity Year unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service, giving them the skills and opportunities to change the world.
As tutors, mentors and role models, these diverse young leaders help children stay in school and on track, and transform schools and communities across the United States, as well as through international affiliates in Johannesburg, South Africa and London, England. Just as important, during their year of service corps members develop civic leadership skills they can use throughout a lifetime of community service.
Major corporations and businesses participate in the City Year mission by serving as strategic partners, team sponsors, and national leadership sponsors. Marist College is proud to be a member of City Year's Give a Year scholarship partnership.
