Alum life

City Year’s remarkable alums demonstrate their commitment to equity in communities where they live and work. Now a network nearly 40,000 strong, our alums are making significant contributions as innovators who work across lines of difference to tackle complex challenges.

City Year was built on the belief that uniting, supporting and empowering diverse teams of young people who are committed to solving some of our country’s most difficult challenges can change our world for the better. We believe that a national service experience can help to make our communities stronger through relationships, collaboration and elevating the power of diverse groups of people working together for the common good. It is City Year’s vision to support our alums’ collective impact as a powerful force working to create change and build more equitable structures within their families, workplaces and communities across the country.

We know the diverse and dynamic young adults who serve with us as City Year AmeriCorps members bring their unique talents along with several shared traits: empathy and curiosity, a desire to learn, collaboration and a commitment to making positive change. City Year is just one step—we hope a catalytic step—on their journey as transformational leaders, social justice champions and civically engaged citizens.


Our network of alums is strong and always growing. Yesterday's AmeriCorps members are today's community leaders.
