This school year, 64 City Year corps members are delivering  life-changing service to four schools in the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, providing whole school support to nearly 2,500 students and specialized interventions to over 600 students who have been identified as needing additional help in order to stay in school and on track to succeed. Below is just one example of one AmeriCorps member, Jonathan Morris, who has returned to Baton Rouge for a second year of service because he felt as thought his job was not yet complete after only one year of service to Broadmoor Middle School.

Jon Morris, an AmeriCorps member serving as a Team Leader with City Year at Broadmoor Middle, still loves to tutor students even though he is no longer a corps member. Students love working with him as well, one student even said, “Mr. Jon is really nice and helps me with science!” It is great to see Jon go above and beyond to keep our students on track to succeed.

Jon, along with some other Broadmoor corps members. are also starting an after school A Cappella group for students at Broadmoor who love to sing and dance. Since Broadmoor no longer has a band or chorus program, students are jumping with excitement at the opportunity to bring music and performance into their school again. Without Jon and these corps members, this group would not be possible!

Without the support of AmeriCorps, our service to City Year, the East Baton Rouge Parish School System and the City of Baton Rouge would not be possible. Because of AmeriCorps, the 17 idealistic young adults have the opportunity to give a year of their lives to serve the students of Broadmoor Middle. Thank you AmeriCorps for the opportunity to #makebetterhappen!
