Team Leaders, City Year Young Heroes Program

Posted by on December 1, 2008

Are you interested in working with Middle or High School aged youth? The non-profit City Year Greater Philadelphia is looking for dedicated individuals to be Team Leaders for our Young and City Heroes program. The Young Heroes are Middle School students where as City Heroes are High school Students. Heroes meet on Saturdays to discuss different social issues facing themselves and their community. After the discussion, the group goes out into the community to do a service project linked to the topics discussed in the morning. A Team Leader is one who leads the Heroes through their leadership development and service. As a team leader, you become an important, positive role model in these youth’s lives. Team Leaders engage, mentor, and lead teams of 10-12 heroes along side of a City Year Corps member.

Being a Team Leader is a very rewarding and beneficial experience that can:
•    Build a strong resume
•    Fulfill community service requirements
•    Develop Leadership
•    Make you a mentor and positive influence in the lives of youth

Any questions can be directed to Clair Morton at, Gary Zane at or Travis Contarino at  or you can call 267-386-7029
