For continued support to help City Year New York expand Diplomas Now in New York City. Diplomas Now pairs teams of City Year Corps Members with evidence-based comprehensive school reform from Johns Hopkins University’s Talent Development (“TD”), and integrated student support services for the highest-need students from Communities In Schools (“CIS”). This year City Year, the lead agency in New York, will deploy 58 AmeriCorps Members to serve as tutors, mentors and afterschool instructors to support this effort, doubling the number deployed last year and growing by an additional school for a total of 3 schools. Combining efforts, Diplomas Now works in partnership with school leadership and teachers to provide students with the range and intensity of supports required to keep them in school and on track to graduate.
