City Year Dallas is an education non-profit, that recruits young people to serve for a year in DISD schools as tutors, mentors and role models to students in 3rd-9th grade. In partnering with DISD and working with these students, City Year Dallas aims to play a part in giving them the support, skills and tools they need to be on track to graduate high school by the time they reach the 10th grade.
