City Year has now entered a period of rolling admission where we will continue to accept applications at each of our 24 locations until we have filled all of our slots. Even though most seniors have been accepted to college, I am sure you are still encountering some who don’t have plans yet, so I would appreciate your help in sharing our rolling admissions blurb below. We are especially interested in applicants willing to serve their local communities of NYC, Providence RI and Manchester NH.
