Academic Supports and Interventions for Students

Overview

Diverse teams of City Year AmeriCorps members serve in Boston Public Schools as tutors, mentors, and role models for students most in need of additional individualized support at school. Our research-driven model focuses on three program areas proven to help students stay on track to high school graduation: consistent attendance, strong social-emotional skills, and improved academic coursework. As near-peers, City Year AmeriCorps members are uniquely positioned to form a strong bond with students to help them succeed. City Year AmeriCorps members support students in one-on-one and small group tutoring, support teacher-led classroom instruction, lead afterschool programs, and organize whole-school initiatives that promote a positive school culture and learning environment (e.g. attenDANCEs to celebrate students with strong attendance).
