Greetings from City Year Baton Rouge! We’d like to welcome you to our blog.  Here, you will find photos, videos, posts, and updates about our Corps Members and our work in Baton Rouge.

Our Corps Members serve at Merrydale Elementary School, Broadmoor Middle School, Capitol Middle, School and Belaire High School as mentors, role models, and tutors to students at risk of dropping out of school.  At three of these schools, City Year implements its most intensive school turnaround initiative, Diplomas Now, a collaboration between City Year, Communities In School, and Johns Hopkins University’s Talent Development.  It is the first fully integrated approach that improves a school’s curriculum and instruction as it provides the right students with the right support to accomplish the right results.

Through strategic partnerships, City Year Baton Rouge builds strong bonds with corporations, schools, and individuals to make a difference in the communities and neighborhoods of Baton Rouge.
