Poverty is real in DC - in fact, 99% of students qualify for a free or reduced cost lunch. The consequences are real: students who dropout are eight times more likely to become incarcerated and three times more likely to be unemployed. When a student drops out of school it has a lasting effect on our communities.
That's why our friends at City Year Washington, DC deploys 169 highly skilled AmeriCorps members to serve in 16 elementary, middle, and high schools. Together, they've positively impacted almost 6,500 students.
So, what can you do? Make an impact today. Now through January 31 at 11:59pm EST, for every $5 cash donation made to City Year, we'll reward you $10 in free driving.*
