Our Los Angeles organization is led by a group of dedicated and inspiring professionals who are committed to ensuring that City Year makes significant impact on helping students who are at-risk stay on track to graduate on time.

City Year is wholly focused on fighting the national dropout crisis. We have committed to leverage the talent, energy, and idealism of corps members to serve as tutors, mentors and role models in schools to help students stay on track – and get back on track – to graduate. 
Our Long-Term Impact goal is to ensure 80% of the students in the schools City Year serves reach 10th grade on track and on time, and to serve the majority of at-risk students in the locations where City Year serves. City Year will focus that service in the communities where the dropout challenge is most concentrated, ultimately serving in the cities that account for two-thirds of the nation’s urban dropouts.
