Top AmeriCorps Program

“I knew about the Peace Corps for almost all my life but I did not know if I had the determination and strength for it. When I discovered City Year it was not only an opportunity for me to give back, but also to see how I could handle similar situations in the U.S. that Peace Corps Volunteers might face in classrooms around the world.”

William Frankel, City Year New Orleans ‘11
