    City Year prepares you really well. They give you practice and are really informative about teaching methods and other practices for serving well.

Obviously, given that it is an AmeriCorps program, you are not paid very well. However, City Year does offer other benefits to try and make living on the stipend more doable. City Year Chicago has a partnership with the CTA to offer free CTA cards to City Year members willing to volunteer about 1-2 per month with the CTA. City Year also has loan forbearance, child care offerings, basic insurance, an EAP that gives you free access to the TalkSpace app, and a good deal of leadership development and career coaching resources that you can opt into. They also provide you with an education award of about $6,000 that you can put towards furthering your education. And they have quite a few partnerships with schools that will match that ed award of provide additional scholarships for City Year alums

Your stipend is less than minimum wage for 50+ hour weeks; it gets draining progressively throughout the year. You will have to work days and weeks when the schools are off.

Health insurance gives similar prices to being uninsured. Great "boot to pavement" experience, but terrible financial decision.
