    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at City Year (Richmond, VA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by a current City Year Corps Member over Skype about 1 week after I submitted my application. The interview took approximately 30 minutes. The interviewer was very relatable and comforting.
