#fbf to meeting the cool-ass peeps I watch on TV every week #graduatela @cityyearla

Saint Spotlight 📸: Meet Jessie! She drove 2,944 miles from New Hampshire to Los Angeles on her own in order to do City Year (woah!) Her hobbies include: loving Harry Styles, hugging trees and keeping up with the horoscopes..The future Team Leader of City Year 2018-19 shares her ✨starfish✨story.


One of my favorite parts of working with 9th graders this year has been watching them mature and grow into themselves. One student I work with struggled early in the year to manage her emotions which led to her frequently leaving or being kicked out of class. This caused academic struggles, and she would resort to calling herself stupid and quickly giving up on work. Now, with just over a month left of the school year, she not only stays in class, but she excels by actively participating and positively expressing her feelings. I remember the first time she did well on a quiz and said “Miss, maybe you were right. I am smart.” This feisty future leader has showed me how every student deserves ceaseless reminders of their potential as well as an unrelenting belief in their ability to be their best self. She is also one student among many others that have inspired me to return to City Year for another round of powerful service next year. ⭐️🐠 • • •

"In this year of service I have truly learned what it means to be a mentor to young people, to put my needs aside, and bring my best self for my students everyday. I push myself to have deep, meaningful relationships with my students that foster open trust and mutual respect. As a first-generation Chicano grad, I use my stories and experiences to relate to, and validate, theirs." - David Avalos ⚓️

Amazing event! #cityyearLA #springbreak #graduateLA #education ❤️💛❤️💛@cityyearla😊

My life began to change on the first day of school. I didn’t realize it until a later time in the year. Education wasn’t on my list of career choices — empowering young people, however, is something I placed in the forefront.
One of the biggest take aways from my service year is “Listen to understand rather than listen to respond.” I believed in giving my students a space to be comfortable. Adjusting my communication to fit the needs of them gave us stronger relationships and growth in areas I didn’t know I needed. - Mia Mitchell 🌺 #AllHandsOnDeck #MakeBetterHappen #PiratesPride #GraduateLA #cityyearla @cityyearla

Sometimes a Corp Member comes into a student’s life and changes it. Other times a student comes to a team and changes them.
This is a shout out to our student A, and all the students like her that light up our lives through their infectious energy and radiant positivity.

When I started my service year, I did not know what to expect but what I did know was that I was ready and excited to connect with my students. Today, I am proud of the relationships that I have been able to form with them. Although it has been difficult to learn about the challenges that my students experience, I try to stay positive for them. I hope that my students will continue to succeed after this year. I believe in them and in their abilities to accomplish whatever goals they set their minds on. - Trent Bae ⚓️ #AllHandsOnDeck #MakeBetterHappen #PiratesPride #GraduateLA #Cityyearla @cityyearla
