Bert’s take on applying early to City Year

We’d like to introduce Bert Rivera. He’s 23 and a recent college grad from Chicago. He currently serves as team leader in a middle school here in Los Angeles.

Last year, he submitted his application by the Nov. 30th deadline. By doing so, he was guaranteed an interview and an admissions decision by the end of the year.

Check out his video to get his take on applying early, the time he spent preparing for his move to LA and his work with City Year this year. 

For more information about starting or completing your application by the Nov. 30 deadline and guaranteeing your interview, e-mail Maggie Teske at or visit our website
