Arriving before the first bell and leaving after the last student goes home, City Year Milwaukee’s AmeriCorps members work full-time in Milwaukee Public Schools to support students in reaching their full potential. City Year AmeriCorps members work alongside school leaders and teachers to provide support on a whole school, classroom, and individual student basis. 


Day in the Life

While the exact daily schedule varies from school to school, each team follows the same initiatives and programming.  


Your Role in Schools

Serving as a City Year AmeriCorps member on a diverse team is a complex and challenging role with varied responsibilities designed to help students develop into all they can be and to help them build the social-emotional and academic skills to achieve their goals.

Our Partner Schools

City Year Milwaukee believes a zip code should not determine the educational opportunities a child receives, however, many students face obstacles that interfere with their ability to arrive at school ready and able to learn, and even the best teachers and administrators struggle to provide for every student's unique needs. City Year Milwaukee serves to fill this gap with over 100 AmeriCorps members serving in 13 elementary, middle, and high schools throughout Milwaukee.
