Powerful Results 

Since 1993, City Year AmeriCorps members have positively impacted Providence's most disadvantaged schools. Over the past two decades, we’ve: 

•    Deployed more than 1,000 AmeriCorps members
•    Given 2.5 million hours of service to Providence
•    Led 5,000 volunteers to give back to their community
