City Year – New York

Posted on February 4, 2021

For the Managing Director of Strategic Initiatives (“MDSI”) who will play a key role in planning for, implementing, and evaluating three capacity-building initiatives which will help them to improve their services to partner schools: the year-two expansion of a standardized literacy-tutoring curriculum; year-two of enhanced pre-service AmeriCorps member training at Hunter College; and the first full year of expanding local recruitment efforts with the support of a team of two local recruitment managers. City Year is a national educational nonprofit that partners with NYC Schools, mobilizing teams of young energetic AmeriCorps Members who commit a year to work full-time in the City’s most under-resourced schools. They identify 3rd through 9th grade students who are off-track in three critical areas — attendance, behavior, and performance — and offer tutoring, mentoring and enrichment activities to help these students get back on track toward academic and life-long success.
