City Year is a national organization with
several cities of focus, and Miami is leading
the way to help students reach for the stars in
and out of the classroom.

City Year has a network of 187 AmeriCorp members who
help in tutoring, mentoring and guiding students to aim
high at 10 high schools and 7 middle schools throughout
Miami-Dade County, impacting about 6,500 students
every year across the country. The City Year Miami team
is led by Keith “Fletch” Fletcher who has a long history in
the education empowerment community. But you don’t
have to don the trademark red City Year jacket or be the
Executive Director to get involved with the organization.
There are fundraising events throughout the year that
are open to the public, including Volunteer Day on MLK
Day, Career Day in January, and an annual Women’s
Leadership Luncheon. They also accept donations year-
round to support their efforts; CityYear.org/Miami.
