The Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale University



The Afro-American Cultural Center at Yale University (affectionally known as "The House"), emerged in response to student initiative and creativity during the 1960s. The House seeks to develop an environment in which cultural diversity is understood and respected throughout the campus community and beyond. The Center helps Yale University respond to the cultural, intellectual, developmental and social needs of a complex and diverse student body, by incorporating undergraduate, graduate and professional students, faculty, administrators, staff, alumni, and members of the New Haven community into a constituency of common interests.

Teach For America



All kids—no matter where they live, how much money their parents make, or what their skin color is – deserve access to a great education. But in our country today, a significant achievement gap exists between low-income children and their wealthier peers. It’s not easy to close this gap, but hundreds of proof points show that it’s possible. It takes committed leaders in our classrooms today who will continue to fight for students tomorrow. Teach For America’s mission is to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity by developing such leaders.

City Year



City Year is an education focused, nonprofit organization that unites young people of all backgrounds for a year of full-time service in urban schools to keep students in school and on track to graduation. At City Year’s 24 locations across the United States and in two international affiliates, teams of trained young people, called corps members, serve full-time in schools for the academic year as tutors, mentors and role models. By focusing on three early warning indicators—attendance, behavior and course performance—corps members are uniquely positioned to help students and schools succeed.
