Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members serve in schools full time as student success coaches. They help students cultivate social, emotional and academic skills, whether that's mastering fractions or learning to work in teams'skills that are important in school and in life. Through their work in schools and communities, City Year AmeriCorps members make a difference in the lives of students they serve while also acquiring valuable skills that prepare them to become the next generation of civically engaged leaders. Since its founding in 1988, City Year has mobilized thousands of young people for national service and inspired the creation of AmeriCorps. City Year San Antonio (CYSA) was launched in 1995 and has delivered meaningful programs to students, families, and communities in Bexar County for more than 25 years. For the 2021-2022 year, 98 CYSA AmeriCorps members will proudly serve more than 7,000 students in nine San Antonio Independent School District (SAISD) schools.
