The Vertex Foundation

The Vertex Foundation and City Year share the belief that pupils in our communities reach their full potential when they have access to learning environments where they can thrive. The Vertex Foundation supports City Year’s holistic approaches and programmes that are designed to enhance pupil and school success both in the United Kingdom and the United States by sponsoring a team of volunteer mentors in London and a team of AmeriCorps members serving in Boston.

In the U.K., the Vertex Foundation supports a Volunteer Mentor and Careers Pathways Support programme, with a focus on increasing recruitment and career opportunities for young people after their City Year service. In the U.S., it is the first foundation to support City Year’s teacher pathways programme in Boston, an innovative partnership among Boston Public Schools, the University of Massachusetts Boston and City Year. Finally, the Vertex Foundation and Vertex employees partner with City Year’s Care Force to engage in high-impact service days to create more welcoming and engaging environments for students in the U.K. and in the U.S.

The Vertex Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)3 foundation that seeks to improve the lives of people with serious diseases and in its communities through education, innovation and health programs.

The Vertex Foundation is committed to inspiring and equipping pupils to become the next generation of innovators. We share City Year’s passion for making a meaningful difference in the lives of the pupils they serve.
