In School & On Track: City Year's Long-Term Impact Plan

Commitment by

City Year, Inc.

In 2012, City Year committed to implement the first phase of its Long-Term Impact (LTI) goal that will provide direct interventions to 117,000 students annually in 546 schools across the United States and increase the number of students on track to graduate in 30 cities across the country by 2017. Recognizing that scalable, low-cost, and high-yield solutions are needed to transform the graduation challenge in America and ensure economic prosperity and global competitiveness for the nation, City Year will make significant investments in its initiatives and systems that will increase its annual impact, while building the capacities, capabilities, and resources to support significant growth. Achieving the Long-Term Impact goal will demonstrate how national service, and AmeriCorps specifically, can work as a disruptive innovation in high-need schools to help children reach their full potential and build the graduation pipeline all across America.
