You are required to meet a minimum of hours at the end of the year. Doesn’t mater how many breaks you take, you still need to meet it

Former Corps Member in Washington, District of Columbia

They give you 12 days to take off (any more than that, and you get fired). Because this is a stipend job, you still get "paid" time off. I didn't feel like I needed more because you also had all the schools days off as well. And they give a bunch of random days off for the whole corps that don't count against you.

STAFF POSITIONS: I came from a company that allowed only 5 days per year for your first two years of working there and went up to 10days and capped out at 15days off after working there for 5 years (ZERO sick time). Coming to City Year you accrue sick time from day 1 - this has no cap and rolls over to new years. You also accrue paid time off from day 1 - only a certain amount will roll over to the new year. I was amazed at the amount of time off I could take and get paid for.

Stackable vacation and you don't have to use your days for Spring Break etc.

Former City Year Team Leader in Milwaukee, Wisconsin

As a team leader, we only got 14 days off a year. Frankly for your mental and physical health this is not enough. But you have to realize that this is service after all.
