In 2011-12, City Year Chicago is a full-time, team-based AmeriCorps program serving 2,200 low-income students in 18 Chicago public schools. Our 175 AmeriCorps members, ages 17 -- 24, provide targeted and school-wide interventions in literacy, math, attendance and behavior to 6th-9th grade students identified as at-risk to drop out. We will enroll 1,000 below-grade level students in our Academic Program and 50% of those completing will demonstrate significant academic improvement.
