Organization Profile

City Year was founded in 1988 on the belief that young people can change the world. The vision of City Year is that one day the most commonly asked question of a young person will be, Where are you going to do your service year? At City Year?s locations across the United States and in South Africa, young people ? called ?corps members? ? serve full time for 10 months. These young leaders put their idealism to work for children and communities through school-based service, youth leadership programs and community transformation: Camp City Year is one of many programs that City Year Washington, DC organizes. City Year Washington, DC?s Camp City Year fills a critical need during spring vacation by offering an exciting week of learning and fun for elementary school children. Camp City Year offers a safe and structured environment, which keeps students actively engaged in programs and activities centered on the theme of community service.
