    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei City Year als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

    Working closely with the students and teachers/staff members in a high need school can be very rewarding, even nourishing. Other Core Members are close to age/professional development (usually). Able to engage with the local community. Students, students, students. You are here for them and they will quickly be the sole reason why you continue to do your work.

    Kontras

    It depends on your location (Boston, Texas, San Jose, Seattle, etc.) and school, I have heard good/decent things from other Core Members in different parts of the U.S, but my personal experience was not enjoyable. The culture that City Year forces on its Core Members can be suffocating, especially if you aren't the type to get into circles multiple times a day and talk about your feelings. The message that... City Year and its staff can be hypocritical at times, especially when they talk about equity and treat the ACM's rather poorly. Continuous preaching about 'be(ing) like water'. When in reality the Program Managers, Team Leaders and other staff members have no real idea of what is going on and simply expect the ACM's to do their work with flying colors. Also ruined the quote for me... My school and the City Year staff were disconnected and at odds many times throughout the year. Sometimes I felt like the school didn't even want us ACMembers to be there. This, however, is dependent on the relationship between the school and the school team (City Year). Most people in the workplace are pretty sensitive (or social justice warriors). (I once went up to a few team members and asked 'do you girls want to eat dinner with the rest of us?' She replied 'I don't like being called a girl, especially by a male'. I just asked if they wanted to eat food after work is all.) Most ACM's are straight out of college, some even out of high school. Because of that, not many people have real life work experience and it shows through their work. Your stipend is taxed, even though it isn't income? I'm not sure on the legalities here, but this might be illegal in some parts of the U.S. Make sure to have a support system. Whether through your team, friends, or family. This is difficult work and will drive you into depression if you have no validation or support in your daily life. You work 50 hours a week, minimum. This leaves little time to socialize/exercise/relax/sleep/etc. Be prepared to work 10 hours a day and have 3-4 hours to yourself, if even that.

    Practice what you preach. In my experience, it has always been City Year saying one thing and doing another. This creates distrust and bitterness within the team, the school, and the staff at CY.

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei City Year gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Working with students, feeling like you are making a difference in a child's life. Good training for group work, teaches patience, empathy and discipline. Excellent social justice education that opened my eye's to so much I was unaware of. Good access to grad schools and Post CY job recruitments.

    Kontras

    Long work hours often exceeding 11 to 12 a day, you make very little money, everyone in my program was on food stamps and living in overcrowded apartments in sketch neighborhoods. Irritating rules that were enforced arbitrarily. Sometimes it felt as if the focus was on securing data and dosage recordings to prove that we were working with students as opposed to just focusing on the actual student and their needs.... Uniforms were cheap and too cold during the winter, too hot during the summer.

    New uniforms, raise it to a livable stipend, more focus on self care for ACM's.

    Ich arbeite bei City Year ()

    Pros

    Working with the students- the only pro.

    Kontras

    Extremely unprofessional staff/upper management. Overwhelming culture. A lot depends on who you get to work with on your team/leadership team/school staff. Unfair management system. Not aligned with mission.
