City Year Reflection

Satisfactory Essays
While browsing on my Facebook newsfeed, I came across City Year. City Year is an education-focused nonprofit organization that helps students succeed in school at beyond. Last year I had the pleasure to serve the community of Orlando, Florida and be part of the Universal Orlando Foundation team at Memorial Middle School. During the school year, each City Year AmeriCorps Member was placed in a classroom and around 15 students were assigned to each team member. The overall goal of the year was to make sure each student improved their grades and behavior. However, the situation was tricky: each member was paid around 13,000 before taxes, there is no monetary compensation for relocation and we were expected to work more than 50 hours per week.
