Community Partnerships in New York City

AmeriCorps awarded our network a grant of over $10,000,000 this year, allowing us to deploy over 270 recent college graduates to serve our students as tutors. Many of these individuals will remain in the cities where they work after their year of service, positively impacting our schools and communities for years to come.
