When we started City Year in Los Angeles five years ago, we set out to change the lives of students across the city. Through your efforts and support, we’ve been able change the trajectories of thousands of students. Last year, 88% of City Year students were back on track to graduate. But, the work isn’t over. We need your help to keep growing!
Thanks to the generosity of City Year alum Jon Neuhaus, ’91, (see photo on the left) every gift made by alumni and families to CYLA will be matched dollar for dollar up to $10,000. Help us meet (and exceed) our goal of raising $20,000 from alumni and families through your contribution today! Make a donation, no matter what size, because every dollar is doubled and will go a long way to ensuring that the powerful work you started can continue. Over 20 years after his own City Year, Jon continues to be influenced by his service:
"I consider myself fortunate for the opportunities I have had, and yet few experiences have been as positive and powerful as City Year. Today I derive lessons and inspiration from my days in uniform, and my continued involvement as a mentor, advisor and supporter. My time in City Year also inspires me to continue to serve my community. I hope that this gift is one small ‘ripple’ that makes the question common across Los Angeles: ‘Where are you doing your City Year?"
With your help, we can reach our goal of raising $20,000 from alumni and families in honor of our fifth year in Los Angeles.
